Why do we love it?

A new Santorini is always a new Santorini. Rebellious, explosive, full of aromas and flavors of a landmark variety of for the Greek vineyard and an island full of character.

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 of Assyrtiko which is allready 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 2014 vintage, Santorini 2017 Vassaltis Vineyards lets both the island and Assyrtiko, take the absolute leading role. The alcohol this time is in the normal levels of the island (due to favorable weather conditions) while the very low yield not exceeding 150-200 kg / ha ensures condensation of the fruit. The stay on the lees for 6 months with regular batonnage, added volume and complexity, making one extremely enjoyable Santorini with prominently long aging potential. Rich and exuberant, it integrates seamlessly around the island's mineral character rightfully claiming a place among the big names.

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

Straw yellow color with greenish reflections in the glass.

On the nose evolutionary aromas of unripe yellow fruits and citrus on a background of diffused minerality. Peach, citrus and grapefruit aromas are accompanied by wet stone and flint.

In the mouth, rich, with creamy texture and intensity that awakens the palate. The pronounced acidity adds nerve while hints of honey make the citrus fruit sweeter in the mouth. The long-lasting aftertaste leaves the fruit on the palate along with a tasty salty finish.
