Intense, pure and mineral-laden Assyrtiko from one of the finest young estates on Santorini - Vassaltis Vineyards. Owner Yiannis Valambous reclaimed his old family vineyards in 2010, and has rapidly become the rising star of the island's winemaking scene.
“Owner of Vassaltis Vineyards is rising star of the Santorini wine scene Yiannis Valambous. Formerly a city trader in London, he returned to his family's island home when the financial crisis hit, wanting to do his bit to help rebuild the Greek economy. Whether or not he has succeeded in this mission, he has certainly succeeded in producing one of Santorini's most delicious Assyrtiko - which shows characteristic mineral intensity, with an unmatched silkiness and polish.”
