Greek Native Variety – Sauvignon Blanc Style

Georgos Wine is a collaboration of the best of the Old World and the Nu.

HISTORY
This wine is named for the ancient Greek island (circa 2,900 BC). Grapes were grown on the island of Santorini as far back as the Bronze Age. A volcanic eruption destroyed all life on the island (circa 1620 AC). Viticultural and winemaking returned to Santorini to become world renowned during the ascendancy of the Republic of Venice.

WINEMAKING
SANTORINI is made cleanly from triple hand-sorted fruit and by using organic production methods. Simply delicious! Hand-picked and triple sorted grapes. Mostly, this type of grape is tank fermented, never seeing oak barrels. This is because the grapes are so darn flavorful. The wine doesn’t need extra enhancement from the barrels. We ferment about 90% of it in a stainless-steel tanks. We ferment the remaining 5% in ¬five-year old French oak barrels. At this age, the barrels no longer have much oak flavor but the interaction of the wood, the tiny bit of air absorbed, and the presences of the ¬fine lees, makes this blending component unique. Added back to the tank lot, this small barrel fermented component rounds out the flavors and accentuates the citrus aromas mixed with an earthy, mineral after-taste due to the volcanic soil. This is a bone-dry wine. Like all Georgos wines, this wine is low in histamines, which can cause headaches and low in sulfites, which can cause allergic reactions*.

THE EXPERIENCE
If you want to know what a Greek Sauvignon Blanc varietal should taste like, this is it. This delicious wine has the structure of a dry Sauvignon Blanc, rich mineral character, and acidity to stand up to meat, as well as pair magically with sushi, shell fish and seafood.
