Domaine Porto Carras Assyrtiko 2018 75cl Bottle


This is an age restricted product for persons aged 18 and over.

In 1970 this was the first Assyrtiko to be planted outside Santorini. The climatic conditions are similar as the soil but such a heavy volcanic influence. The vines are mostly located at 200-300 metres above the sparkling Mediterranean sea where the breezes and dry climate create perfect conditions for organic viticulture. The vineyards yield at a tiny 800 kilos per hectare, creating wines of intensity and structure.

The grapes undergo a period of cool prefermentation maceration on skins before a low temperature fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The wine is then aged on lees for six months in old French oak barrels to draw out extra character.
