2017 Acroterra Santorini White
Structured, serious, mineral and citrusy, this medium bodied white wine is refreshing and complex, with white flowers and chalky aromas. Drink it now with fish dishes and hard yellow cheese, or let it sit for a few years to add even more complexity.
The blend of Assyrtiko, Aidani and Athyri grapes are hand-picked and cooled to 14C to avoid oxidation during the vinification process. 75% of the grapes are processed through a pneumatic press, and 25% are left on the bunch. After the pressing, the juice is transferred to stainless vessels where alcoholic fermentation begins with wild yeasts. Fermentation: about 5 months. Direct separation of the wine-lees. The wine rests in tank for 2 months at 11 C, is bottled unfiltered and released after 10-12 months.
