    Winemaker's Notes:

    Santorini is the southernmost island in the Aegean Sea and one of the islands in the Cyclades group. Formerly known as Thira as well as Kallisti (‘The Fairest'), Santorini is a volcanic island with porous terrain and unique appearance that were created by a series of volcanic eruptions many hundreds of thousands of years ago. This unique topography has promoted Santorini into a viticultural (winemaking) region of its own. The loam soil offers many benefits to viticulture in Santorini, among these the crisp, clean, mineral qualities of the island varieties.

    Boutari Santorini is the white wine that distinguished the Santorini vineyard worldwide. Today it constitutes a must for every oenophile. The island of Santorini, located in Greece's Aegean Sea, is essentially a defunct volcanic caldera. The island's loam soil is characteristically dry -- this, in combination with Santorini's microclimate, provides Boutari Santorini with its mineral and citrusy characteristics. Served at 50°F, it pairs excellently with seafood, poultry and white meat dishes.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Rich and well-crafted, with golden delicious flavors and plenty of nice creamy touches. Plenty of smoke and spice on the fresh, juicy finish.

    The 2007 SANTORINI is 100% Assyrtiko, aged five months in stainless steel. Santorini’s old vineyards contain pre-phylloxera vines. This combines a certain initial solidity with a nice, bright finish, a bit of herbaceousness and some bursts of acidity around the edges. I particularly liked the finish, which lingered respectably for a wine in its price category. It holds nicely with air, remaining rather persistent, sunny and charming. Drink now-2012.
