Artemis Karamolegos Terra Nera Assyrtiko 2022

Aegean Islands - Santorini, The Islands, GreeceArtemis Karamolegos is one of the most dynamic wineries on the unique island of Santorini. Led by his grandfather, who started making wine and cultivating vines as a hobby in the 1950s, Artemis founded the winery in 2004. They own just over 3ha of vineyards (some over 100 years old) across Pyrgos, Megalorchori, Exo Gonia, Akrotiri and Fira, and have long term contracts to farm another 5 hectares. This 'entry level' Assyrtiko comes from relatively young vines, averaging only 50 years, from lower altitude vineyards. It was fermented and aged in stainless, on lees, for 6 months. Crystalline lemon, quince, green apple, pink grapefruit flood the bright, medium-bodied white, with nice grippy saline-swept tension. Smart, friendly, charming marine white.Tasted: 07 December 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
