90% Mandilaria & 10% Mavrotragano
A bright and refreshing red from the Greek Island of Santorini. From this most dry and sunny locale, the Atlantis is a blend of two local grapes that offers a stylish and different form of Mediterranean red.
Founded in 1903, the Argyros Estate is located on the island of Santorini, famed for its spiraling vines and white washed churches. In 1950, the Argyros vineyards were passed down to the founder’s son, who tripled the estate from 5 to 15 acres. Yiannis Argyros, the third-generation owner of the estate who took over in 1974, began looking beyond the local market for his wines. Today, Matthew Argyros, the fourth generation of family winemakers, continues his father's legacy by making legendary wines from Assyrtiko and other indigenous Santorinian varietals, using traditional techniques.
Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Intense red in colour, reminiscent of jam and liquorish, over a smooth spicy and toasted background, which comes from the small percentage of Mavrotragano. Fruity and tannic, this wine matches well with a great variety of meat dishes. Ageing for 6 months in French oak barrels of 500 litre."
