A lemon-green hue with a very elegant bouquet filled with hot volcanic stones, honeysuckle, dried apricot and green apples. On the palate, very complex with high acidity, grapefruit flesh, honeydew and zingy minerality.

Food Pairing

Oysters, salt-crusted whole fish, grilled guinea fowl and an assortment of fresh summer fruits.
ABV: 13.59%
Grapes: 100% Assyrtiko

Celebrated winemaker, Giannis Tselepos, has joined the Canava Chrisou Estate where they have been producing Assyrtiko for over 50 years. He brings his passion and winemaking success from the Peloponnese to 12 hectares in one of Santorini’s most desirable locations.. Grapes are also sourced from three villages, Emporeion and Akrotiri, providing the backbone of the blend with Pirgos’ later harvested grapes offering greater depth of fruit and complexity. All grapes are family grown on the unique volcanic ash and pumice soil of Santorini.
