Founded in 1997 by Haridimos Hatzidakis and Konstantina Chryssou. The vineyards are located in Santorini, with the majority being planted in the region of Pyrgos Kallistis where Hatzidakis is the only certified organic producer. The vines are planted at an altitude of 100-300 meters above sea level and south/ southeast facing.   Grapes are harvested from the single vineyard of Louros; grapes are brought to the winery for crushing, separation of the must from the skins, and fermentation with indigenous yeasts at 18 °C.    12 hours of skin contact is followed by aging on the lees for 12 months in french oak barrels.  The wine is bottled unfiltered and further aged at the winery before it is released to market.
Taste: This expression of Assyrtiko is dry, full bodied and densely flavoured. Tart and ripe golden delicious apple, with bosc pear, ripe peach and meyer lemon fill the palate. The wine has a crushed rock and saline minerality with underlying notes of white pepper, fennel frawn, button mushrooms, and soft white flower petals. The light use of oak adds richness and complexity to the wine; showing notes of cinnamon and nutmeg. The length is long and the wine finishes fresh
Cellaring Potential: Drink now or age for 10+ years
Food Matching: Pair with shellfish, roasted chicken, pork or game meats. Also great with mature, full-fat cheeses.
