Tasting Notes
This is the estates top cuvee made from 100% Assyrtiko, which is best known for being the indigenous variety of Santorini. With a brilliant bright straw colour, the wine introduces you to distinct aromas of exotic fruit such as passion fruit with notes of honeysuckle and a subtle smoky character. The palate shows fresh citrus fruit with smooth round body and a richly complex texture with an elegant finish.

Pairs well with white fish such as sole, shellfish and grilled chicken.

The Peloponnese Peninsula is a large landform on the southern edge of continental Greece. Covered in mountains, rugged plateaus and valleys, the area has an abundance of mesoclimates and terroirs suitable for premium viticulture. Native grape varieties such as Agiorgitiko, Moschofilero and Mavrodaphne are planted throughout the peninsula. The modern Peloponnese wine industry began to grow following the end of World War II, and today the region is one of the most viticulturally productive in Greece.

The Lantides Estate is situated in the Ancient site of Nemea, in the heart of the Peloponnese, north of Argos and just west of Corinth on the coast of the Aegean. Panikos and his son Simon run 25 hectares of vineyards which are situated around the mountainous valley of Skoteini in altitude between 500 - 650 meters above sea level. This family business was started in 1993 by Panikos Landidis, who had previously studied in Montpellier and Bordeaux in oenology. Today this knowledge is used to make quality wines using local varieties that are native to Greece.
