Tasting Notes

Thalassitis is produced from Santorini's indigenous white grape variety, Assyrtiko. Perhaps, it is the only variety in the Mediterranean that manages to combine full maturity of grapes with considerably high acidity, despite the specific climatic conditions of the island. This fact is an essential factor for accomplishing flavor balance in dry white wines. All the Assyrtiko grapes selected for Thalassitis originate exclusively from vineyards in Episkopi, Akrotiri and Pyrgos regions. The vines in these regions are almost 80 years old.The particularly low-yield that never exceeds 25 hl/ha combined with the terroir and the variety results an exuberant and nervous wine with a strong personality. - Chris L

Our winery was built in 1997 at the heart of our private vineyard of 7ha in Koutsi village of Nemea P.D.O. zone, at an altitude of 550m. First we chose the vineyard and then the location of our winery. Koutsi is a semi-mountainous village surrounded by vineyards known for their chalky soils and good drainage. The cool temperatures, the ideal sun exposure and the steep inclination of the vineyards give lower yields than other parts of Nemea. Therefore, we strongly believe that Agiorgitiko grapes cultivated in Koutsi have higher quality than the rest zone of Nemea and are ideal for producing high-extract and oak-aged wines. - Winery Note
