Description

Anhydrous Icon is the flagship wine from this Santorini winery. In tiny quantities from old-vine Assyrtiko, fermented and aged in concrete eggs, it’s a liquid expression of Santorini’s volcanic soil and sea air.

The Mountrichas family has been growing grapes since 1830, and today Apostolos and his wife Lenga make the wines and run Avantis Estate. The 20 hectare property is located on the island of Evia, just off the East coast of Greece.

A combination of red and white traditional and international varieties are planted, producing both blended and single varietal wines. This estate has a great reputation in Greece as one of the country’s most progressive wineries, however was not imported to the UK until 2018.

Tasting Notes: Medium-bodied wth soft, juicy bramble fruits, a hint of spice and a gentle, succulent finish.
