“The Finest Greek white!”

Regardless Of Winter, Spring, Or Summer, Enjoy The Finest Greek White Made!

By David Gettenberg

Sigalas is one of Greece’s finest white wine producers - in fact, a short list candidate for the best." Wine Advocate

After one sip of this amazing white, you'll swear you were on the island of Santorini!

Unlike any other Greek white, the 2019 Sigalas Santorini Assyrtiko explodes from the glass with a freshness and zesty grip like no other.

From the undeniable sea-breeze notes, to the dynamic, thirst-quenching citrus, this wine is head and shoulders above its peers. 

The aromatics explode from the glass!  Beautiful citrus and saline notes wrap around a dry, mineral driven finish. It is a vibrant, aromatic Assyrtiko with fresh lemon notes along with incredible saline undertones.

We've been told the wine is going to be taking another price increase in upcoming vintages.

Enjoy it now and over the next five years with seafood, salads with feta, or simply on its own.

“The clean, dry and serious finish is lovely.”

Wine Advocate • 93 / 100

"The 2019 Santorini Assyrtiko, the flagship 100% Assyrtiko, is unoaked, dry and comes in at 14% alcohol. It was bottled in November 2019, sourced from vines over 70 years in age, all non-grafted. Solid in the mid-palate but without the very ripe nuances that some bigger wines on Santorini can acquire, this has fine structure to support the fruit and a great finish. The clean, dry and serious finish is lovely. It seems elegant and a bit understated, perfectly crafted and balanced—in other words, pretty typical. As is also typical, it always shows better the next day. This wine just has too much going on to show well in its youth on first pour. It looks splendid and able to develop over some years. It should improve, not just hold. I tend to think this will eventually overtake the 2018 Kavalieros this issue (a late release), but that is certainly more evolved and showing better today."
