for this grape?

Athiri is an ancient Greek variety found on the island of Santorini (or Thira as it was known in ancient times.) Athiri is a medium-bodied, high-acid grape that is most popularly blended into Santorini's PDO Santorini, PDO Nykteri and PDO Vinsanto wines. When blended with Assyrtiko, the grape helps to boost the wine's aromatic qualities. However, Athiri can also be vinified on its own to create a delightful, aromatic white wine for easy-drinking. – Description from Constance Chamberlain
