Karamolegos are fast becoming the most inventive and exciting producer on Santorini. Assyrtiko 34 (named for the 34 centuries of winemaking tradition on the island) is made with fruit from very old (120 years+) vines. It is a thrilling example of what Assyrtiko can do in this unique place.
Wine & Greene also stocks another outstanding dry white from this beautiful volcanic island, Karamolegos 34 ... Santorini's most characteristic wine, the wonderfully nervy, long-lived white made from the local Assyrtiko grape, has done far more than its fair share to put modern Greek wine on the map.Jancis Robinson MW
100% Assyrtiko from very old vines. On the nose it’s a volcano in a glass: crushed stones and a chalky-spicy nature reminiscent of a great Chablis, with wild flowers and citrus fruit in the background. On the palate there’s grapefruit and tangerine too, with salinity and oyster shell complexity. Phenomenal wine, truly world class: wonderful to drink now or keep.
