Hatzidakis Winery Assyrtiko 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Pale yellow color with pleasant citrus aromas. Full-bodied with firm acidity and long mineral aftertaste." Winery "In 1996, Haridimos and Konstantina Hadzidakis returned to the family vineyard their parents had been forced to abandon long ago, after the earthquake of 1956. Together they transformed a traditional cave or “canava, carved in volcanic rock, into a small boutique winery that now produces some of the finest PDO Santorini wines on the island. Their vineyards surrounding the winery are some of the few actually certified organic on the island and are cultivated using the traditional basket shape vines grown directly on top of the volcanic soil. An innovative Enologist, since his first days of working at Boutari’s Santorini winery, Haridimos continues his work today with an unmatched passion and creative drive to make the perfect Santorini wine.

The Hatzidakis winery was founded in 1996 by Haridimos and Konstantia Hatzidakis on the island of Santorini, Greece. The winery resides in an original cave of Santorini that was abandoned several years ago during the earthquake in the 1950s. By 1997, the Hatzidakis transformed the cave into a small, artisanal winery and Santorini’s famous kouloura vines can be found just outside the cave. Within these vineyard plantings one can also find Santorini’s famous tomato plantings. Most of the vineyards, however, can be found on the outskirts of the village Pyrgos Kallistis at 150-300 meters facing north/northeast. The vineyard covering spans a total of 10 hectares throughout the island plantings. Hatzidakis has always and continues to follow organic vineyard practices as set by EU standards, but has not applied for classification. Currently, Hatizidakis has six wines in their portfolio, not all of which are available in the US. They include: Hatzidakis Santorini: 90% Assyrtiko, 5% Aidani, 5% Athiri Aidani Assyrtiko: 75% Assyrtiko, 25% Aidani Santorini Barrel: 100% Assyrtiko, aged in new oak barrels 10 months Nikteri: 100% Assyrtiko, macerated at lower temperatures Mavrotragano: 90% Mavrotragano, 10% Mandilaria Hatzidakis Vinsanto: 70% Assyrtiko, 30% Aidani Although small in production, Hatzidakis wines are respected throughout the world as a prime example of Santorini’s most famous grape, Assyrtiko.

ssyrtiko 90% idani 5% thiri 5%. The wine comes out in a light white yellow color which proves the good condition of the grapes and with soft golden shades. The nose is pleasant with strong fruity aromas. The mouth appears full aromatic and the aftertaste has a certain freshness coming from the acidity of the wine which is typical of the island.
