Vinsanto (not to be confused with the Tuscan 'Vin Santo') is a speciality of Santorini, and Argyros are the masters. The combination of bracing, fresh acidity and concentrated, rich, sweet fruit make this one of the world's best value and longest-lived sweet wines. They make three - a four year old, a twenty year old and this twelve year old. The twelve is arguably the sweet spot, with incredible depth, intensity and layer upon layer of flavour. It has the structure to be cellared for decades, if you can resist drinking it.
Estate-owned vineyards of very old vines with original rootstocks, pruned into the traditional Santorini basket shape. Handpicked and dried in the Santorini sun for two weeks. Aged in barrel for twelve years.
