Santorini barrel aged
€31.00 – €109.00
Santorini Barrel Aged is a wine our oenologists are especially proud about. Made from 100% Assyrtiko, this wine ferments in steel tanks and is then aged in 3rd use 500lt French oak barrels on it lees. It ages for a further seven months in stainless steel tanks and eight months in the bottle before its re- lease.
This wine defeats criticism that Assyrtiko shouldn’t be aged in oak to preserve its volcanic characteristics unadulterated, by giving a perfectly balanced wine with great complexity and great ageing potential.
