2017 Venetsanos Nykteri Santorini Assyrtiko
Venetsanos winery is located right above the port of Athinios, overlooking the magnificent caldera of Santorini. The Venetsanos family has a very long tradition in producing wine. Originally was produced for the island and subsequently it was exported extensively. It was built in 1947 by Venetsanos family and became the first commercial winery on the island. It’s most distinguished feature is the structural design, which essentially used gravity, facilitating energy efficiency, at a time when access to electricity and other energy sources was very limited. The winery was built in an unconventional manner constructed from above and moving downwards.
Bright yellow color with golden hues. Elegant aromas of lime and magnolia flowers with a sense of citrus jam and mastic that co-exist harmoniously with herbal aromas of thyme, sage and mineral hints. The presence of the barrel is noticeable mainly by the sense of vanilla. In the palate the body is full, oily and the acidity creates balance with strong and long aftertaste. The maturation in the barrel together with fine wine lees is detectable with the aromas of wood, roasted coffee and flowers.
