Greek Assyrtiko

Greek Assyrtiko is a white wine grape variety indigenous to the island of Santorini, but is now cultivated across Greece due to its high-quality wines. This grape has adapted remarkably to Santorini’s volcanic soils and harsh conditions, contributing to its unique character. Wines made from Assyrtiko are renowned for their bright acidity and intense minerality, often exhibiting distinctive salty and citrusy notes along with flavours of green apple or pear. Some versions, particularly those aged in oak, may also present a richer, more complex profile with hints of smoke or honey. Assyrtiko is a must-try for those interested in exploring the diversity of Greek wines and the unique expressions of its native grape varieties.
