Santorini is part of the Cycladic islands and is located directly north of the Island of Crete. Due to the fact that Philoxera never affected the island, most vines are between 50- 200 years old. Established in 1903, Estate Argyros is run by Matthew Argyros, 4th generation of winemaking. Based in Episkopi Santorini, the winery owns more than 30ha of vineyards with pre-phylloxera plants averaging 60 years old, including some of the oldest vines of the island (over 150 years old).
Following the family tradition that lasts since 1903, Estate Argyros produces the ASSYRTIKO ARGYROS. It is a dry white wine made by the variety of Assyrtiko 100%, cultivated in the private vineyard located in Episkopi Gonia. The sedulous selection of grapes from a 50-60 years old vineyard and the vinification, result to a fine dry white wine with a strong personality. Crystal-clear yellow colour, distinctively flavoured with citrus overtones. The relatively high acidity of Assyrtiko gives it a crisp freshness, while the vineyard's extremely low performance offers body, structure and substance.
Served at 8-10°C with fish and seafood simply cooked.
