Mylonas "Assyrtiko" 2020

100% Assyrtiko
A still white wine from the Attica region of Greece.


Round & refreshing. Floral & herbaceous.

Tasting Notes

The Assyrtiko 2020 from Mylonas estate has a pale yellow colour.

On the nose it’s floral and herbaceous. It also show some minerality but not at all comparable to assyrtikos from Santorini!

On the mouth it’s round and slightly petillant.

The finish is medium long.

Mylonas

Mylonas is a small winery, producing just under 100k bottle per year. They are based in Attica, Greece.

Stamatis Mylonas and his brothers took the winery over from their dad. Stamatis had studied oenology and chemistry and started experimenting and pushing boundaries. Yet, the new vision for the family winery still at its very centre Savatiano, one of the region indigenous grape variety.

In fact, at Mylonas more than half of the wine production revolves around it.

And indeed they bottle several labels using Savatiano: current vintage wine, late release bottles, they age it in oak to produced yet another label, they add nothing to it and make a natural wine, they let the grapes sundry to produce a sweet version of it, and let’s not forget… they add pine resin to the must and bottled their retsina!

Assyrtiko

Varietal

Assyrtiko is a Greek white wine grape, probably the best known variety indigenous to this country. This grape is native to the island of Santorini. Here the soil is arid and volcanic which contributes to Assyrtiko distinctive mineral character.

While Assyrtiko is originally from Santorini, it is now grown all over Greece, from the northern area of Macedonia (Makedonia) to the Attica (Attika) region. Cuttings of Assyrtiko have also made it to the New World and Assyrtiko wine is now produced in Australia and the United States too!
