The fourth wine in our series is courtesy of Wimbledon Wines – the fabulous Vassaltis Assyrtiko 2015.
While there are a number of longer-established and more famous producers of Assyrtiko on the island of Santorini, it’s the younger generation represented by Vassaltis owner Yannis Valambous, who, with their passion and energy, are driving quality to the level of the white Burgundies and Rhones
that dominate the fine wine world stage. Vassaltis Estate’s Assyrtiko has been compared to top
Puligny-Montrachet and Condrieu – it offers the power and succulence, combined with elegant structure and intensely fine minerality of both, with its own unique character, from Santorini’s famously volcanic soils.
Let us know what you think when you try it at our London Greek Wine Festival on 8th and 9th October – don’t forget to buy your ticket for the event!
