Koutsoyannopoulos, Santorini Assyrtiko, 2013

$36.99
Available for Same Day Delivery (or Pickup) in Manhattan.

Located on the sundrenched, volcanic island of Santorini, Koutsoyannopoulos is one of the oldest continuously operated wineries in all of Greece — it was founded in the late 19th century, after the 400 year long Ottoman occupation when much traditional winemaking knowledge was lost. The indigenous Assyrtiko grape is the island's crown jewel, and few producers know it as well as Koutsoyannopoulos. 

At turns savory and floral, Assyrtiko's laser-focused acidity takes center stage. Sea salt and lemon zest meet classic Greek herbs (bay leaf, thyme) for a complex, refreshing and terroir-transparent wine. A rare chance to try a Greek white with bottle age, direct from Flatiron Wines' own cellars.

Koutsoyannopoulos' wines are crisp, but they're not simple. If you've had basic Assyrtiko in the "New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc alternative" family, put that experience out of your mind. These wines are richer, denser, still refreshing, but much more interesting and haute-cuisine worthy.
