Natalie's Score: 92/100

Crisp and clean with aromas of lime zest and white grapefruit. This is a lively and medium-bodied Greek white wine blend of 75% Assyrtiko and 25% Athin grapes grown on vines planted in volcanic soils in the region of Santorini. Terrific energy and lemon brightness right through to the refreshing finish. Pair with shellfish and sunlight.

Assyrtiko Athiri food pairings: grilled calamari, fried Saganaki cheese, chicken brochettes.

Reviews and Ratings

Domaine Sigalas (2015) is an Assyrtiko, Athiri wine blend from Santorini. This refreshing white is made of two indigenous to Greece white wine grapes: Assyrtiko with intense earthy, mineral flavours from volcanic island soils; and the aromatic, quince and pear flavoured Athiri variety. On Santorini, the vines are trained in a basket shape to protect the fruit from the intense wind. Drink now and try it well-chilled with grilled shrimp, or cellar for five to allow the wine to show its best. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
