"Hand-picked, destemmed, 90% cool-fermented in stainless steel, 10% in barrel. Very intelligent winemaking invests the wine with firm acidity creating texture and structure. Clingstone peach fruit demands to be appreciated as it wraps itself around the lemon curd acidity." - James Halliday
"Assyrtiko perhaps a little under-sung as a grape variety, not least if you happen to be by the seaside (and I do like to be beside the seaside) scoffing a plate of char-grilled calamari, or similar.
Brine and green herbs, ripe lemon and green pear. It’s powdery and fresh, distinct brine and perfume, good crunch and freshness, a slight but pleasant bitterness, and a cool dry finish. Fit for purpose and very good." - Gary Walsh, Wine Front
"First released in 2016, our Assyrtiko has the distinct flavours and provides a true expression of terroir in a similar way to the family's site-specific Rieslings. While the soil and climate of the Clare Valley have imparted their own characteristics, it has remained true to the ideals of Santorini, producing a fresh, crisp, and dry wine with saline characters." - Jim Barry
