This is a very interesting blend of Crete’s two native grapes: The floral Vilana (65%), which also adds depth of color, and the fresh and fruity Vidiano (35%). Vidiano was virtually extinct at the end of the 20th century but has been saved by the interest of a younger and more innovative generation of winemakers. Together they create a balanced and fresh wine with lots of apple, grapefruit, pear and mineral tones.
Gaia Santorini Wild Ferment Assyrtiko 2017: “This is a Santorini unlike any other. Cold macerated for 12 hours on the skins, then fermented without any added yeasts in an array of French and American oak barrels, as well as some made from acacia, it could stand in for a young Meursault. The initial oak scents are quickly subsumed in a tsunami of saline, chalky flavor, broad and savory, the texture as creamy as a meringue. It lasts on salt, lemon and chalk, ready to take on sliced leg of lamb with avgolemono.”
