Overview

This wine is the result of Yiannis Tselepos collaboration with the Chryssos family in Santorini with the later offering their own vineyard in Pyrgos and Emporio (12 hectares). The rejuvenation of the 12-hectare age-old vineyard has resulted in a wine with high extract, purity of fruit, lime character and minerality (wet pebbles, saltiness and notes of earth). Nervous palate, high acidity, creamy body, moderate (+) alcohol, high concentration and long aftertaste. An excellent wine that will fully show its world class status four years after the harvest. The 50 - 100 years old vineyard has been treated and revived, making 2013 the first harvest of the new project. Tselepos target is to produce super premium wines that reflect the special characteristics of Santorini. His goal is to show to the international market that Santorini wines with its special volcanic soil, phylloxera-free vines and world-class grapes like Assyrtiko, can be placed among the best white wines of the world.
