Papagiannakos Assyrtiko from Attika in Greece is full of fresh floral aromas of citrus, white blossom, wild orange and lime. On the palate it has citrus characters on the textured, mineral palate with a refreshing saline acidity. It is a very zesty, crisp and characterful white with potential to age.
It is produced from 100% Assyrtiko grapes from vines that are grown on unirrigated limestone soil at around 100m altitude, in north-east Attika. The grapes are typically harvested towards the end of August and the wine undergoes no oak ageing. it is fermented and matured in stainless steel at a controlled temperature (16-18ºC) with some time spent on fine lees and then undergoes maturation in bottle for one year.
