Size: 750.00ml
The remains of an ancient volcano that erupted around 1600 BC, Santorini is one of the southern Cyclades islands and is most recognized for its white wines made from the fruity and mineral-rich, Assyrtiko. On the fairly barren, windswept island, vines must be cultivated in low baskets, pinned to the ground. The shape serves to preserve moisture and protect the growing grapes in its interior. Domaine Sigalas was founded in 1991 by Paris Sigalas, Christos Markozane and Yiannis Toundas. Sigalas has been a pioneer in the organic viticulture and has participated in a government organic farming methods program since 1994. Subtle nose of citrus fruit. Excellent structure with a depth of flavor and an acidity which brings the flavors to the fore and adds freshness, with a lasting after-taste. The characteristic mineral taste is evident, typical of the variety and the soil of Santorini at it's very best. 91 Pts – Robert Parker's Wine Advocate Food pairing: Grilled fish, octopus or Greek salad with tomatoes and feta
