Gavalas Santorini Natural Ferment

 

£38.00

From the esteemed Gavalas winery in Santorini, a delicious dry white wine fermented with wild yeasts of the island. The result is a unique and traditional Assyrtiko with more complexity and body than others that use commercial yeasts for fermentation. Aromas of stone fruits and yeast accompany the typical saltiness and minerality of Assyrtiko. Expect a full body and creamy texture with high acidity and a long aftertaste. Pairs perfectly with seafood, large oily fish and white meat with creamy sauces.
