THALASSITIS is produced from Santorinis indigenous white grape variety, Assyrtiko. Perhaps, it is the only variety in the Mediterranean that manages to combine full maturity of grapes with considerably high acidity, despite the specific climatic conditions of the Island. This fact is an essential factor for accomplishing flavour balance in dry white wines.
All the Assyrtiko grapes selected for THALASSITIS originates exclusively from our vineyards in Episkopi, Akrotiri and Pyrgos regions. The vines are almost 80 years old and have a particularly low-yield that never exceeds 25 hl/ha.
