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.
