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.

Introduction to Wines from Domaine Sigalas (Episode 56 Introduction)

In this episode, we have the pleasure tasting some wines from the island of Santorini which itself is part of a group of islands called the Cyclades.

Located in the South Aegean Sea the island is only 1,400 hectares, with terraces that rise up to between 150m to 250m above sea level
Vineyards in the region were known to exist since the 17 century BC, but were destroyed by a volcano eruption around 1620 BC
The island was re-inhabited around 1200 BC when they started making wine again thus making this area a wine making area for some 3,000+ years.

Many of the wines on the island are over 50 years old.

The family vineyard that we are tasting the wine from during this Episode was called the Sigalas Winery when founded in 1991.

The vineyard has expanded since 1991 and now produces and bottles up to 300,000 bottles per year and is now called Domaine Sigalas.

You can find out more about this fabulous vineyard from their website:-

Our thanks go to Panayiota the Hospitality Director of Domaine Sigalas for sending the terrific samples we reviewed.

Muscat Dessert Wine from South Eastern Australia (Episode 53 Part 3)

The last Muscat in this episode, we get to taste is a fantastic example of a Dessert (or Pudding wine) from Yalumba – South Eastern Australia.

Yulumba was established in 1849 so they have a fair amount of time to practice getting it right!

John refers to a slight smoke taste and this might come from the barrels that Yulumba made themselves in their own Cooperage. In fact, Yalumba is the only winery in the Southern Hemisphere to have their own Cooperage.
