Press Reviews

This dry white made from the variety that reaches its zenith on the island of Santorini in the Aegean Sea may not have quite the mineral sharpness of its Greek counterpart; but it’s heading in that direction with its limey aromas and textured ripe fruit complemented by a mouthwateringly crisp acidity.
Pairs nicely with: Prawns, pan-fried sardines, Salad Niçoise.

*Top 50 Whites for Summer*
Fed up with the usual summer round of chardonnay and sauvignon? Branch out with this awesome Aussie Assyrtiko, with its unusual, tangy, wet stone, pine and punchy Mediterranean herb pizzazz.
Jane MacQuitty, The Times, 29th June 2019

Saline more than warm and earthily volcanic on the nose. (But then of course this one is not grown in volcanic soils....) Very well made. Clean and fresh with the lemon and saline qualities of Santorini Assyrtiko well to the fore. It's certainly as good as if not better than many non-Santorini Assyrtikos I have tasted and is admirable well balanced and persistent… 16.5/20.
