Sigalas is one of Greeceâ€™s finest white wine producers--in fact, a short list candidate for the best.
\nThis producer is universally acclaimed for his skill with Assyrtiko of all types. He is simply a master with this grape.
\nFounded in 1991, Sigalas wines were initially made at the converted Sigalas family home. In 1998 a new vinification, bottling and aging unit was built in a privately owned area of Oia, on the northern part of Santorini. Here the Santorini Assyrtiko as well as the Aidani, Athiri, Mandilaria and Mavrotragano varietals thrive. The vineyards for these varietals are considered the oldest continuously cultivated vineyards in the world, over 3000 years. The volcanic soils and climate of the viticulture area are the most unique and this "terrior" cannot be replicated anywhere else in the world. This is indeed a very special place.
Its color is light lemon with bright green shades. Its fragrance is expressive and full of freshness with citruses dominating and notes of mango, peach and mineral make up a beautiful fragrant whole. The mouth is cool, with lemon acidity and fresh fruit to besiege the palate leaving a very pleasant aftertaste.
