Dry, Still, White, Assyrtiko, Ages well
Stunning expression of Santorini, where its aroma, although still quite fresh, is at the same time elegant and complex, with fresh citrus fruits, citrus peel, ripe white fruits and aromas that resemble stone and betray the terroir. Its taste is rich, with the characteristic sharp acidity and long aftertaste where it leaves a beautiful sense of saltiness.
The amazing series ‘Cuvee Santorini’ of Ktimatos Argyros, is framed by another great wine, Cuvee Nychteri, an Assyrtiko that gives another dimension to the traditional wine style of the island. The fruit comes from vineyards at least 150 years old in Pyrgos and Megalochori and is harvested ripe. Most of the wine is fermented in large French oak barrels where it ages for 12 months, and then matures for another year in stainless steel tanks along with the sludge and batonnage magazine. This is a magnificent wine that hides in it all the wealth, dynamics and history of this unique terroir. It has been on the market for two years now, but it is certain that it can evolve into a bottle for many years and be rewarded for its patience. If you are looking for a great class, Greek wine to 'invest' in its evolution over time, then this is definitely appropriate.
