Argyros Assyrtiko 2016
An ageworthy Assyrtiko from one of the most beautiful places on Earth. Think grilled octopus on Aristotle Onassis' yacht with Jackie. Founded in 1903, the Argyros Estate is located on the island of Santorini, famed for its spiraling vines and whit-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, Mathew 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.
