Assyrtiko 100%. The family discovered the quality potential of East Crete since the 70's. Originally on the “Vo´ila” plain and subsequently in the extended surroundings, they discover exceptional vinyards where the great grape variety Assyrtiko thrives.
Vintage 2018 JancisRobinson.com, 17 points - "Restrained herbal and lemony nose, full and dense, firm in the mouth and it becomes drier and more chalky on the finish. Excellent concentration without heaviness. Spice and a sour-salty freshness, impressive persistence. Not quite as extraordinary as the best Assyrtikos from Santorini but concentrated, dry and with a long stony aftertaste. Shows how good this variety can be elsewhere in Greece. The best vintage of this wine I have tasted so far.”
