Domaine Sigalas Kavalieros Single Vineyard 2020
Region: Santorini, Greece
Bottle size: 75cl
Complex, powerfully mineral nose, with intense aromas of citrus fruit (ripe lemon), accompanied by hints of herbs and citrus flowers. Rich body, refreshing acidity and long aftertaste, wιth persistent minerality.
The vines are over 60 years old on average. The soil of Santorini is unique, as the whole area of the island has been covered with volcanic material since 1620 B.C. Kavalieros is one of the best vineyard blocks of the island offering an exquisite Assyrtiko with exceptional depth and concentration.
To the overall story of Assyrtiko there is a chapter before and another one since Paris Sigalas. He is the pioneering winemaker who applied mathematics and other innovative ideas to oenology and viticulture to elevate Santorini’s wines to international stardom. The 1991 Santorini is his maiden vintage, the first wine to be labelled Protected Designation of Origin, marking the start of operations at Domaine Sigalas.
