As far as indigenous Greek varietals go, and I do find that Greek winegrowers and producers do the most interesting things with indigenous varietals, Assyrtiko and Xinomavro have become my favorites. For Assyrtiko,
Santorini is the region to look to. It seems like the place to go to as well, it seems like the type of place I need to place on my travel list.
The Karamolegos Feredini Assyrtiko is a great value for a Santorini white. With a clean nose, and a bright, up front palate, this is a fresh and focused white wine. Easy to drink and balanced, this is a great option for fans of
French Sauvignon Blancs who want a change, or want to explore Greek Whites. Minerally with an almost chalky finish, this wine doesn’t rely entirely on fruit for its character.
Pair this with any shellfish dish, or with roasted fall vegetables.
