Manoussakis Winery, Nostos - Assyrtiko
Assyrtiko is a rare, classy white grape, possibly one of the greatest varieties found in the Mediterranean basin. It originated from Santorini (Assyrtiko-Santorini) but it spread all over Greece, becoming, in terms of quality, one of the most important native varietals. It produces mainly dry white wines, some of which are being aged in oak.
This is a beautiful Assyrtiko from Crete. After four months "sur lies", this Assyrtiko keeps the crispness and minerality but also shows a higher level of primary fruit aromas and a less dense structure.
