Why do we love it?

It may be the beginning of Spring ... this wine is shouting for summer!

Nassitis means islander (in the Doric dialect used by the first inhabitants of Santorini after the eruption of the volcano). And a native islander, a blend of the 3 white varieties of Santorini, is the best companion for our visit to the island of black stone.

Aidani, Athiri and Asyrtiko are vinified separately. They meet and each variety has to say her own. Like friends having to see each other for a long time. Elegance, liveliness, acidity, "minerality", fruit and flowers are the first they talked about. They had a whole lot more to share.

Picture this. It is the summer of 2018 and you are preparing your trip to Santorini, looking forward to discovering everything about the volcano, walking on the Caldera, diving in the mysterious seabed of Santorini and enjoying the Santorini gastronomy!

Whether you make it to the island or have a change of plans, with the Vassaltis Vineyards's Nassitis 2017, Santorini can easily come in your glass. The kind of holidays that never end ...

Open lemon color in the glass.

Moderate intensity nose with tropical fruits competing with the white slices. Mango and pineapple meet apricot and peach in a great combination. Chrysanthemum and daisy complement the mineral feel of the island that is all over the glass.

Medium (+) volume body with playful mood. The toned acidity is balanced ornately with the slight sweetness of the alcohol that makes the fruit more lively. Peach and pineapple dominate with apricot and chrysanthemum following. The long-lasting aftertaste leaves a fruity feeling that remains for quite a while.

NASSITIS 2017 - VASSALTIS VINEYARDS

PAIR IT

Pair it with Santorini fava, fried anchovies or green salads with fruit

Kakavia (fish soup)

  • 1200 g small fresh fish for soup (tip: use different fish)
  • 250 g potatoes
  • 2 medium sized onions
  • 100 ml of olive oil
  • 2 lemons
  • Salt, preferably sea salt
  • 6-7 black peppercorns
  • A little hot chili pepper (optional)

First gut the fish and remove the scales. Cut the potatoes in a symmetrical way and slice the lemons.

Saute the potatoes in a deep pot with olive oil. Score the onions slightly from the underside and pour them into the pan stirring for 2-3 minutes.

Pour in the juice of one lemon. Add a little salt, pepper, chili pepper (optional), pour 600 ml. water and allow the mixture to boil for about 8-10 minutes.

Then place the fish in the pot and simmer for about 10 minutes without shaking.

Remove the pot from the fire, pour in the juice of the other lemon and shake the pot carefully to prevent the fish from crumpling. Let the soup cool down for 10 minutes before serving.

 

At a platter serve the fish with the potatoes and onions and season them with olive oil. Serve the soup in deep dishes.
