Zafeirakis Assyrtiko, Thesaly, Greece 2023

Christos Zafeirakis received his masters in oenology in Milan and worked at wineries in Tuscany, Piedmont, and Alto Aldige before returning to Greece to take over the family estate on the slopes of Mt. Olympus.  His knowledge and experience with Italian wines leads his winemaking style toward the preservation of acidity and purity in his Greek wines.  All of the Ktima Zafeirakis vineyards are certified organic and all wines are made with native yeasts. 

This is 100% Assyrtiko grown on slopes dominated by clay, hand-harvested, and fermented and aged in only stainless steel.  The nose is zesty with hints of floral and vanilla notes, and the palate is bone dry with crisp acidity, medium body, and a long mineral finish.  Excellent pairing for summer seafood on the grill or lighter Greek fare.
