Tasting notes: The Plano Assyrtiko offers a nice minerality with aromas of the sea. Green apples, crushed stones, fresh pears, white grapefruit and green lemons on the nose. Crisp and refreshingly mineral, with a medium body and stony finish.
Producer: Wine Art Estate lies at the foot of Mount Pangaion in Drama, Northern Greece. Since ancient times the region has been known for the cultivation of the vine and the production of wines, as evidenced by the ruins of a Sanctuary of Dionysus, the ancient Greek god of wine. Wine Art Estate was created by civil engineer Yannis Papadopoulos and architect Yannis Kalaitzidis who became passionate winemakers. They created a beautiful winery in the early 1990s and are known for their award-winning wines. Currently, the son of Yannis Papadopoulos, Akis Papadopoulos, is the lead oenologist, having studied winemaking and chemistry in Bordeaux. The wines are highly distinguished in Greece and are vinified from indigenous and international varieties.
Vineyard and Winemaking: The Wine Art Estate vineyards at Mikrochori overlook Mount Pangaion, in antiquity home of the cult of Dionysus and the Orphic mysteries. The vineyards were planted on carefully chosen south-facing slopes, well protected against late frosts. The soil is mainly sandy-clay, suitable for the cultivation of the Greek and foreign varieties planted and ideal for the development of their characteristics. Wine Art Estate has currently 16 hectares of vineyards.
