Santorini isn't entirely about Assyrtiko, and for something different there's no better place to go than the endlessly experimental Hatzidakis. As well as red, white and dessert wines from little-known Greek grape varieties, there is this rosé made from 100% Mandilaria. Crafted the Hatzidakis way, from high quality fruit fermented with indigenous yeasts, it has a very appealing strawberry/floral character, run through with wonderful freshness and a salty tang. Superior rosé from one of Greece's best.
Sourced from Mandilaria plantings in various vineyards in Pyrgos, Megalohori, Akrotiri and Emborios, 70-330m above sea level. Fermented with indigenous yeasts in stainless steel tank. Kept in tank for six months, then bottled unfiltered.
