Santorini Winery Assyrtico 2007

Member Review by Constance Chamberlain:

Winemaker's notes: Τype: Dry white wine, Santorini Appelation of Origin of High Quality. Varieties: Assyrtiko 100% A traditional and famous wine of Santorini, with high alcohol degree and strong character. In the past, the vineyards used to harvested over matured, and they used to crash the grapes during the night, in traditional wineries (Canaves).Nikteri was made….For our Nikteri the harvest was very late.We used the traditional way to separate the must. “The nose” is pleasant, with fruity aromas. “The mouth” appears full with long aftertaste. Pairs with: dishes of intense spicy taste, rich in fat fish, white meat or even red meat in light red sauce. Best served at 12-14˚C.It can be aged for 6 years Bottled: In Santorini, 4.800 bottles

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.

The nose is pleasant with tropical fruit aromas. The palate matches the nose with a long finish. Goes well with spicy foods, oily fish, poultry, or even red meat in light red sauce. - Winery
