2018 Sigalas, Santorini Assyrtiko

The Finest Greek White!
"A liquid landscape of Santorini!" Wine & Spirits

Refreshing is an understatement!

After one sip, you'll swear you were on the island of Santorini.

Unlike any other Greek white, the 2018 Sigalas Santorini Assyrtiko explodes from the glass with freshness and a zesty grip like no other.

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

This is THE best Greek white on the market. 

The aromatics explode from the glass!  Its 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.

It is unfortunate that so little of this wine is made each year.

It is equally unfortunate that we've been told the wine is going to be taking a price increase in upcoming vintages.

But, while supplies last, enjoy it now and over the next five years with seafood, salads with feta, or simply on its own.

$40.95 per bottle / $491.40 per case
