Tasting a Fantastic Greek Red Wine (Episode 56 Part 3)

In the last part of this Episode, we taste a Red Wine from Domaine Sigalas.

And what a Powerful beast this turned out to be!

Made 100% from the Mavrotragano grape, which until recently was under threat of extinction. This grape has now however become popular with new plantings.

This red has been aged in new Oak barrels for around 18 months and once again if you can keep your hands off of it has unlimited ageing potential.

Tasting a Sweet White Wine from the Greek Island of Santorini (Episode 56 Part 2)

In Part 2 we taste a fantastic sweet wine from the Domaine Sigalas vineyards and “what a beaut” it is!

This wine is made from 75% Assytriko and 25% Aidani grapes which are sun dried for 10 – 12 days and then the wine is aged in old oak barrels for a minimum of 24 months.

The island the vines are grown on, Santorini is a volcanic island named after its volcano – Santo Erini – and thus the wine is named after it’s place of origin – Vinsanto.

The name is a “historical name of appellation” one of the few still in existence.

To top it all, if you can resist drinking it straight away, it’s ageing potential is unlimited.
