Papagiannakos' coastal location on the Attican peninsula infuses the wine with salinity and racing acidity, due to its proximity to the sea. 

Production

Produced from 100% Assyrtiko grapes. The vines are grown on un-irrigated limestone soil at around 100m altitude, in north-east Attiki. Grapes are typically harvested towards the end of August. The wine undergoes no oak ageing - it's fermented and matured in stainless steel at a controlled temperature (16-18ºC) with some time spent on fine lees. Maturation in bottle for up to a year.

Tasting Note

Fresh floral aromas of citrus, white blossom, mandarin and lime. Further citrus characters on the textured, mineral palate with a refreshing saline acidity. A zesty, crisp and characterful white with potential to age.

Food Match 

Swordfish - straight off the griddle, or roast belly pork.
