Why do we love it?

He’ve tasted white Potamissi in the past and unfortunately it did not leave a positive impression. But that was until last year, when we first tasted Aspro Potamissi by Yiorgos Xydakis. We were so impressed with its complexity, balance and good structure, that we were freed from any preconception.

This year, prepare for even greater things, because Potamisi 2018 from Xydakis Winery came altered, improved and in its best version! The only that remained stable in the equation is the tiny annual production of just 500 bottles…

Yiorgos Xydakis, dentist in the profession, tasted, for the first time, a sweet wine from sun-dried Kountoura grapes, in 1966, from his winegrower grandfather. That was enough for him to fall in love with wine and local grape varieties. Xydakis Winery was founded in 2001 and it included an old vineyard with native Cycladic grape varieties with which he engaged as an amateur, and bottled wines for friends and wine connoisseurs. His philosophy is based on wines from old vines, mainly from Mykonos but also from the surrounding islands too, with minimal interventions and indigenous yeasts.

Potamissi 2018 is no exception. Contrary to the previous vintage, Potamissi 2018 hasn’t being matured in oak barrels but in a stainless steel tank. The reason for this change was the emergence of the unique character of the variety. It remained for 8 months on its fine lees and then it was bottled unfiltered, capturing the exuberant aromas and flavors reminiscent of a Cycladic island. 

As you can imagine, we are talking about minimal bottles (500 bottles + 50 magnums only !!) which are usually monopolized by restaurateurs and collectors in the blink of an eye. 

Fortunately, we’ve reserved for some bottles. They are very few, so hurry up!

It has medium golden color.

Nose initially shy, that is unfolding gradually ... Aromas of bergamot, orange, honey, butter, kumquats, biietr orange, toast and chrysanthemum are complemented by mineral flavors.

On the palate, it seduces with its structure and its rich body. Oily feeling and crisp acidity, perfectly balanced. Honey, orange, toast, lemon, grapefruit, butter and mineral notes expressed as wet stone and flint, create a complex and delicious whole. Citrusy aftertaste that lasts.
