Assyrtiko finds its ‚Äòhome‚Äô on the island of Santorini, but now successful plantings have emerged across Greece. Most winemakers agree that it is a relatively neutral grape in character but perfectly transmits the essence of the site where it grows. In Santorini, the proximity to the ocean and the volcanic soil gives a salinity and intense smoke note. Here, high up in the limestone mountain sides of Aigialeia, Assyrtiko gives an elegant wine, with minerality, a hint of light chalky tannin, and notes of citrus and alpine flowers.
Great service and excellent wines
Excellent service and excellent wines. I wanted a selection of six wines and asked Peckham Cellars to make the choice for me based on a price range. The wines were all superb and unique in that they were from small suppliers that I personally would have no knowledge of. If you want something different at your next dinner / party then I can't recommend these guys enough.
Super-speedy delivery! My wines arrived safe and sound in fully recyclable packaging. A real bonus. Website has such a great selection it was hard to choose.
I placed my order online from…Melbourne
I placed my order online from Melbourne Australia and the delivery of my birthday gift to a friend in London happened smoothly, quickly and well presented. Big thanks to the team at Peckham Cellars
Nice wine. Easy and efficient
Great for sending to friends as gifts/congratulations. You can include a message with the wine, so ideal really. Fun range of interesting wines.
