Dry, Still, White, Assyrtiko, Keep for 2-3 years, 13.5% alc.
A white wine made for summer Greek table. The lemony minerality of Assyrtiko smokers acquire notes from the oak barrel and lifts every summer seafood cooked on the grill.
The varelati Santorini has become the wine that accompanies elite psarofagikous grilled delicacies. That's because of Assyrtiko stay in oak barrel means body and flavor complexity, while having a delicious main destination: the charcoal! The tag Santorini Barrel of Domaine Sigalas highlights the delicate aromaticity of Assyrtiko and protects its ideal acidity, while dresses with ruggedness that gives the oak. It is a delicious wine with great length and spicy, and even longer life in the bottle.
