Description

Third Generation winemaker Peter Barry first tasted the Santorini native grape variety Assyrtiko whilst holidaying on the island in 2006. The crisp, racy, dry white wine reminded him of Clare Valley Riesling and thus began his involvement with the ancient variety. Many vine cuttings, custom quarantines and propagation followed and finally in August of 2012 the first wine was produced. The 2017 vintage is an absolute ripper with racy lemon acidity, mineral driven texture and great length - try with raw seafood or stemmed mussels.

Smells

Orange blossom, lemon peel and apricot stone

Tastes

Medium bodied with racy acidity balanced by ripe stone fruit and impressive texture. Enjoy with fresh seafood through to 2020.
