Volcanic Slopes Vineyards 2016 Pure Assyrtiko

Regular price £41
3 in stock

Volcanic Slopes Vineyards produces just one wine: Pure, a 100% Assyrtiko from very old (200+ years) vines on Santorini. The project of Manolis Chloridis and Matthew Argyros, it is based in a restored old canava - a traditional wine cellar. As the name suggests, the wine is made with purity in mind. The result is a concentrated, focused and, yes, pure Assyrtiko with mouthwatering freshness and great depth. Although it's a relatively new project it is immediately one of the finest wines on the island. It can be drunk on release or cellared for at least ten years.

Racy and cool on the nose. Real focus and grip. Tastes so youthful! Reverberant on the end. Tastes as though it’s only just ready to drink, and is so long.
