The land of Santorini is anhydrous, since it rains rarely. The 3,500 year tradition in vine cultivation and the art of wine making is maintained nowadays by SantoWines which cultivates approximately 4000 acres of vineyards that represent about the 1/3 of Santorini surface. Cliff vineyards in Santorini are spreading out on different ground levels, forming the distinctive “pezoules” which were made by the producers so that it is easier for them to cultivate and to maximize the effectiveness of rainwater.
The 4-year maturation in oak barrels offers a mature and velvety character, tricking the mouth between honey and lemon, raisins and sweet spices. Best served at 8οC. Great ageing potential
Enjoy it as a dessert wine or accompany it with fresh fruit and desserts such as Crème brûlée, cheese cake, dried fruits, dried nuts with honey, baklava.
