External Reviews for Domaine Sigalas Assyrtiko White Imported-Greek
A clear expression of two indigenous varieties of Santorini island: The Assirtiko variety, intense, earthy, expressing the volcanic island soil, balanced with the more quince-like, aromatic Athiri variety. Vines are trained in basket shapes to protect from the intense wind. It is believed that Athiri is the father to the Ribolla Gialla grape seen most in Italy.
Powerful, intense and earthy, Assyrtiko is the characteristic expression of the volcanic soil of Santorini, and the more aromatic and tempered Athiri, with a name that shows its links to its place of origin (Thira-Santorini). Their marriage is a unique blend where the aromatic character of the Athiri (at a proportion of 25%) is the perfect counterpoise for the earthy, mineral notes of the Assyrtiko (at a proportion of 75%).
Colour straw blonde, bright, with a nose of ripe citrus fruit. With refreshing acidity and a delightful after-taste.
