Description

Impossible to say the variety name but don't let that stop you trying this wine. You will be back for more. Second Generation winemaker Peter Barry first tasted the Santorini native grape variety Assyrtiko (A-sir-te-kok), 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 quarantine and propagation followed, and finally in August of 2012 the first vine was planted. The 2020 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 kernel aromas.

Tastes

Medium bodied with racy acidity balanced by ripe stone fruit and impressive texture. Enjoy with fresh seafood through to 2024.
