THALASSITIS is produced from Santorini's original white grape variety, Assyrtiko.
Perhaps it is the only variety in the Mediterranean that manages to combine full ripeness of grapes with significantly high acidity, despite the island's special climatic conditions. This fact is a significant factor in achieving flavor balance in dry white wines.
All Assyrtiko grapes selected for THALASSITIS come exclusively from vineyards in the Episkopi, Akrotiri and Pyrgos regions. The vines in these regions are almost 80 years old.
Enjoy it at 10° C with seafood, fish, lamb and white meat or in sauces of moderate intensity where salt, acid or oil predominate.
A special feature of most Assyrtiko wines from Santorini is that, despite their white color, they behave like red wines! Try to store Thalassitis for 2 to 3 years at a temperature of 12 to 14 ° C and you will see an interesting change in it. Its mineral dimension will decrease while the aromas of fruit and honey expand. Don't forget to pour the Thalassitis into a wide carafe half an hour before serving. You will definitely be satisfied with the result!
