Why do we love it?

Santorini 2020 Vassaltis Winery has just arrived and we really love it. Its mineral character is mixed with dense fruit and slightly floral elements that make it extremely charming.

Call them speculative or visionaries, three young men, John Valampous, Elias Roussakis and John Papaoikonomou, ventured into the Greece of crisis to invest money and countless personal effort on an island whose vineyards are continually shrinking in favor of tourism development.

One of the newest wineries in Santorini returns with its fourth year of production Assyrtiko which is already established among the best on the island. With a name inspired by the black volcanic rock formed by the cooling of the basaltic lava that has covered the island of Santorini after the eruption nearly 4,000 years ago, Vassaltis Winery is now ready to make great wines and to host the countless visitors of the island.

Very different from the 2015 vintage, Santorini 2020 Vassaltis Vineyards lets both the island and Assyrtiko, take the absolute leading role. The very low yields, not exceeding 150-200 kg/ha, ensure the rich fruit concentration. The maturation on the lees for 6 months with regular batonnage, added volume and complexity, making one extremely enjoyable Santorini that can be enjoyed right now or the following 5 years. Rich and exuberant, it integrates beautifully the island's mineral character so it rightfully claims a place among the big names.

Drink it now or just wait for five years. The decision is yours.

Tastes Like

Santorini 2020 Vassaltis Vineyards has pale lemon color with greenish hues. On the nose, it has intense aromas of unripe yellow fruits and citrus on a background of diffused minerality. Peach, citron, pear, honeysuckle and grapefruit aromas are accompanied by wet stone and flint.

In the mouth, it is rich, with creamy texture and intensity that awakens the palate. The pronounced acidity adds nerve while hints of honey make the citrus fruit sweeter on the palate.
