If you like Albariño and Gruner Veltliner, Assyrtiko is the new summer white for you to try. One sip takes you straight to the sapphire-colored waters of Aegean Sea. It’s bright, clean and makes your crave something equally as refreshing like this Spiced Cucumber, Feta + Fresh Herb Salad
Organic farming practices, hand-harvested, & less than 2,000 cases produced.
Brothers Stamatis and Antonios Mylonas oversee this third-generation (founded 1917) self-described ‘micro-winery,’ a boutique domaine of 12 hectares situated in the red clay-limestone of Keratea, Attica.
Antonis and Stamatis studied chemistry and oenology, but their deep knowledge of the land comes from being raised and nurtured with the soil and with the vine. They grew up observing it and savoring the individual scents of the foliage, different each season. As for the grape, its annual creation, aroma and taste have become part of them. That is what they wanted to preserve.
In 2000, after the loss of their father, Antonis and Stamatis took over the winery and transformed it into a small, modern winery, with official international distribution. Their philosophy is to create high-quality wines with the authenticity of the taste in accordance with the land that nourishes the vine.
Like a newly blossomed flower, this wine is fresh and aromatic. Its bright acidity, serious structure, and long, herbal finish will make you want to take a bite of food. Pizza, pasta, or salami and pecorino anyone?
Sustainable farming practices, hand-harvested, and native yeast fermentation.
This is an incredibly pleasant and interesting wine with hints of citrus & stone fruit, sweet smoke and hazelnut. The depth of flavor continues for an impressively long finish that never stops developing. Drink now or lay down for another 5-10 years. This wine has the structure to age, but is drinking beautifully now as well.
This wine would be wonderful with a buttery, lobster linguine topped with lemon and fresh herbs.
