Overview

100% Assyrtiko. A subtle nose of citrus fruit on the nose. Excellent structure with a depth of flavour and an acidity which brings the flavours to the fore and adds freshness, with a lasting after-taste. Has the characteristic mineral taste, typical of the variety, at its very best.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale yellow, with green hues.

Aroma

Aromatic, with citrus fruit and minerality.

Palate

Minerality is evident, as a result of Santorini’s unique terroir. Quite “austere” as wine, with the acidity being the back-bone of the wine, allowing it to age. Petrol notes and honeysuckle appear in aged Assyrtikos, similar to the German and Alsatian Riesling.

Cellaring Potential

Over 6 years.

Food Matching

Seafood and white meat with light sauces, at 10 - 11° C.

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.
