Tasting Notes

The Assyrtiko 2019 from Estate Argyros has a pale yellow colour.

On the nose it’s mineral and sapid with slate and a touch of rubber, citrus notes and under ripe mango.

The mouthfeel is round and pleasant with a lovely, well integrated acidity that balances stuff very well.

On the palate this Assyrtiko is lovely and warm, a touch spicy.

The finish is long and very pleasant.

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!
