Appellation: Superior Quality Santorini

Sigalas is one of Greece's finest white wine producers - in fact, a short list candidate for the best. I would like to take credit for that conclusion, but there is not much dissent here. This producer is universally acclaimed for his skill with Assyrtiko of all types - dry, barrel fermented and sweet - and I can only climb on the bandwagon. Sigalas is simply a master with this grape. I would say that this was one of the most impressive Assyrtiko lineups I've had - except that I had a Sigalas vertical before at the winery.Mark Squires,

Expert Reviews

The 2010 Asirtiko / Athiri (75% Assyrtiko, the rest Athiri, with the atypical spelling of Assyrtiko as a brand name on the label) is often the best value point in the Sigalas lineup, not that the "Santorini" (100% Assyrtiko and labeled just like that, per Greek appellation custom and rule) is particularly expensive for the high quality. This year, it is another fine value, with the wine showing youthful intensity and fine body. It's hard to go wrong here for the price. Although I'd give the clear edge to the 2009, this has plenty to recommend it (although note the alcohol spike from 12.8% on the 2009 to 14.2% here). A bit mouth-puckering at the moment, with a touch of earthiness, it should come around nicely. It seemed to handle the alcohol well. Rating 88 - Drink now-2015 - Mark Squires, (JUN/2011)

Winery Profile

Domaine Sigalas was founded in 1991 by Paris Sigalas, Christos Markozane and Yiannis Toundas. Initially, Sigalas winery was accommodated at the traditional winery of Paris Sigalas family. Later on, in 1998, a new wine production, bottling and maturity unit was built and activated in a privately owned area, in Oia, the northern part of Santorini Island. Today, after constant investments on technology modernization and expansions the current productive structure is formed, which allows the elaboration and bottling of 200.000 bottles a year.

The company cultivates 19 hectares of vineyards with local varieties and produces quality wines, in which you can see the potential of the varieties and the unique ‘terroir; of the volcanic island.
