Sweet, Still, White, Aidani, Athiri, Assyrtiko, Ages well, 13.5% alc.
The Vinsanto of Argyrou Estate is a constant value in Greek sweet wines. Here the warm sweetness offset by its exceptional acidity and concentration leads to an excellent wine. The careful vinification and proper aging give a result that is firmly embraced by the ubiquitous friends of sweet wines, sweeping the distinctions in Greece and abroad.
Overripe grapes from Assyrtiko, Aidani and Athiri, from vineyards older than 200 years, are strictly selected in the area of Episkopi and dried under the hot sun of Santorini for about ten days. After fermenting the wine matures for 3 years in concrete tanks then ages for 4 years in old wooden tanks Its color is light brown. Its aroma combines ripe but also fresh elements and reminds of dried and jammed fruits such as figs, orange peel, honey, chocolate, herbs and nuts. Incredibly delicious with acidity that does not let the sweetness monopolize and a nice melancholy aftertaste. It could age for many years and even acquire an even more complex character, although it is ready to be enjoyed even now.
