Hatzidakis Winery:

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.

Fantastically balanced wine from this boutique winery in a cave on a hillside on Santorini. One of the best examples of this variety.

Floral, with fragmented and well balanced acidity and minerality, this assyrtiko made wine is a wonderfull ambassador for its kind! 2005 would be lovely till 2009 I think.

The most interesting thing about the Assyrtiko that grows on Santorini, aside from the wines that are produced from it, is that the vines are trained in a spiral basket formation, which protects the grapes against the incredible heat of the island. Citrusy, minerally, and made accompany grilled octopus. This is a richer and riper style of Santorini white than many, but the citric acidity and the piercing minerality are pronounced and tame the wine's richness.

Coming from the Greek island of Santorini and made from 100% of the indigenous grape, Assyrtiko, this white will simply delight you. Smokey, with notes of honeysuckle and citrus, this wine is laced with a focused minerality.
