Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine Sigalas Assyrtiko 2013

Rated 92 by Robert Parker
The 2013 Santorini is Assyrtiko, listed at 13.7% alcohol this year. Fresh and refreshing in this vintage, stylistically this seems to be a very different wine than the rich and ripe 2012 Santorini reviewed last year (or the 2012 Kavalieros submitted this issue).

Additional Information on Domaine Sigalas Assyrtiko 2013

Winery: Domaine Sigalas

Country: Greece

Few countries in the world can claim such an illustrious history of viticulture as that found in Greece, just as few countries can benefit from such an impressive range of terrain as that found across the mainland and islands of this ancient and fascinating land. When we consider that grapes are grown everywhere from the tiny islands in the Aegean sea, to larger land masses such as Rhodes and Crete, on the arid and rocky mainland and mountainous regions of Greek Macedonia, it is no wonder Greek wines show such huge diversity in style, flavor, aroma and character. One thing remains consistent, however, and that is the dedication to producing distinctly 'Greek' wines, full of characteristics which reflect the slow evolution of viticulture in a country which has been producing wine for several thousand years. Whilst certain wines, such as Retsina and those made from the Agiorghitiko grapes have long since been popular with fine wine drinkers world-wide, Greek wineries are continuing to produce superb wines using a wide range of native and imported grape varietals, meaning there are always plenty of new flavors and aromas to discover.
