A superb Assyrtiko from Santorini, the Sigalas is an absolute classic. These gorgeous old vines have been cultivated organically under methods traditional to the island, then fermented in steel to produce a classic style that is powerful and weighty, but perfectly clean and loaded with mineral nuance. We are lucky to be able to import from this famous producer, and their estate Santorini Assyrtiko is an outstanding flagship. Drink it or cellar it, but don't miss this wine!


93/100 Mark Squire, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2018 Vintage)
"The 2018 Santorini Assyrtiko, the flagship 100% Assyrtiko is unoaked and comes in at 14% alcohol. This is textured and elegant, while still solid in the mid-palate. If a couple of the 7 Villages offerings are powerhouses, this leans a little more to balance—but it still has very ripe fruit and its fair share of power. It's a bit young and less evolved than the 2017s, of course, but that will come. The rest combines balance and concentration. The fruit still has flavour, the finish is fine and it gets longer as this airs out and evolves. This isn't as striking as many of the 7 Villages wines, but it is still very fine. You may like it as much or better for its combination of fruit, grace and harmony. Drink 2020 – 2031."


16.5./20 Julia Harding MW, JancisRobinson.com (2018 Vintage)
"Tank fermented. Sour grapefruit freshness on the nose, smoky and dusty in its mineral expression. So zesty it feels as if there is a slight spritz. Tight and bone dry, with the lemon spritz on the finish. Drink 2019 – 2028."
