Assyrtiko is the white grape variety native to Santorini in Greece. It was on vacation here that Peter Barry discovered the variety and thought it may suit his vineyards back in the Clare Valley. On returning home and making enquiries he found that there was no Assyrtiko growing there, so he set about importing and establishing rootstock. This is the fourth vintage and first to be available in New Zealand. Made as a fresh, dry white. Maybe think a softly textured dry Riesling. Flavours of lemon blossom, honeydew melon with a lovely mineral purity. Intriguingly different and very good.
Well, it’s quite a lot like a Clare Valley Riesling in many respects, yet different. Has a little floral perfume, green pear and lemon/lime tang, some green herbs in the mix, a pebble strewn texture, and a refreshing finish of fair length. It’s not fruity, as such, and would be super with a plate of squid or similar. It’s a promising debut."
