The Sarris winery is in the south-west of Kefalonia, overlooking the Ionian Sea. This is in an area of picturesque villages, olive and orange groves, as well as vineyards in terraces below a forest of black pine. The winemaking is what you might call 'low intervention'. The wine is fermented with wild yeasts, half in a two year-old, two tonne oak barrel, and half in stainless steel. There is a bit of skin contact, and then it is left to do its thing, bottled unfined and unfiltered and with no additions save a little sulphur at bottling. The end result is a bright, crisp white - a little floral, with a lovely citrus intensity, great minerality and a lot of layers. It has many of the elements you get in Santorini Assyrtiko, with a little less power and a softer, easier-going character. And while Santorini prices continue to soar, this is exceptionally good value.

Single rocky vineyard in the area of Fagias, on the slopes of Ainos, at an altitude of nearly 800m. Fermented with indigenous yeast, half in a used oak barrel and half in stainless steel. One day of skin contact. Aged six months in steel and three months in oak casks. Unfiltered, only minimal sulphur at bottling.
