Argyros Ktima Argyros Bareli 2009

Member Review by Constance Chamberlain:

Winemaker's notes: Estate Argyros Barrel A special wine produced in very limited quantities, has been created by introducing Santorinian Assyrtico grapes to oak barrels from central France. The sedulous selection of grapes, combined with the fermentation and ageing in French oak casks, has produced a rich, full-bodied wine. Wood essence and a hint of vanilla add extra flavor to the fruit of Assyrtico, while the mouth remains smooth and round, slightly buttery – a complete, complex, aging wine. Tasting comments: Golden –green color, complex fine aromas of roasted dried nuts, honey, butter, wood, fruits and an after-taste of quince. A good combination of fruit and barrel provides balance in the mouth and an interesting finish. Vinification: Typical white vinification, aging in French oak barrels of 500 l for 6 months. Alcohol: 13.0% vol. Total acidity: 7.1 g/l Ageing capacity: 10-12 years Accompanies: Fish with dressings, poultry and white meat. Aged and smoked cheese. Serving suggestions: at 8-10 οC

Argyros:
Estate Argyros was established in 1903 by Georgios Argyros, in a 5 acres vineyard located in Episkopi Gonia Thiras (Santorini). Georgios Argyros made his wines according to the traditional Santorinian way, in order to take advantage of the grapes produced by his own vineyard. The wines produced were sold mainly in the local market.
