Argyros Atlantis Red 2014
Founded in 1903, the Argyros Estate is located on the island of Santorini, famed for its spiraling vines and white Wine Advocateshed 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. 90% Mandilaria, 10% Mavrotragano. Each grape variety is vinified separately in stainless steel tanks, in order to preserve the unique, fresh fruit flavors. After fermentation, the wines are blended, and aged for 6 months in 500L French oak barrels before bottling.
