Boutari Santorini 2013 Assyrtiko

When we started looking into doing a radio show on “Out of the Ordinary but Extraordinary”b the  island of Santorini was an obvious choice. The way the grapes are grown in baskets are very unique as are their wines.  I found a super white wine. It is made with one of the indigenous grapes of the island. Although they do make wines from the traditional Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc etc., my goal was to something unique.

And I did. The grape is Assyrtiko. Its origins come from Santorini although it is planted widely in Greece. The grape loves the volcanic soil and typically produces dry, full bodied, aromatic white wines with a touch of mineral character.

My wine pick is the Boutari Santorini 2013 Assyrtiko…. Crisp, with green apple and hint of citrus, with that mineral note and long finish, so delish with my grilled fish!
