Overview

The second label of Domaine Sigalas, namely “ΑΑ”, is a more affordable alternative to Sigalas Santorini, without compromising the unique character of the island’s wine style. About 75% of the wine consists of gently pressed Assyrtiko (as the free-run juice of Assyrtiko is used to make Sigalas Santorini) and 25% of Athiri free-run juice and first pressings, as well as other local white varieties of the island. These varieties differentiate the character of this wine, which has a slightly lower acidity (still high though), making it easier to drink on its own. The sur lie method is again applied during vinification. This excellent value-for-money wine is suggested to be enjoyed within 3 years from the vintage year.
