Anhydrous (arid, waterless), is the newly released super cuvée of Avantis released in just 900 bottles this summer. It is a blend of two separate vineyards in the village of Pyrgos, that ferments and matures in a concrete egg. On the nose, it is already expressive with stone fruit, nectarines and floral undertones. On the palate, it delivers high complexity being layered and vertical at the same time with a dense mid-palate and a light grip on the very long finish. Avantis’ most complete Santorini wine produced yet.
Assyrtiko-Santorini wines are rare and distinctive. These wines are born from the indigenous Assyrtiko grape, cultivated in some of the world’s oldest vineyards, dating back 3.500 years, on the volcanic island of Santorini, where nothing is ordinary! Assyrtiko-Santorini world class still dry whites can be drunk young or aged, as they are precious, truly ageworthy wines; the ideal complement to haute cuisine, fish, seafood and, surprisingly, even meat dishes. These terroir driven wines of distinct character are structured on exciting minerality and savorous density. They both reflect the unique volcanic and anhydrous soil of Santorini, which is an internationally acclaimed “pedigree”.
It all began in 2012 when the well-known Winemaker Apostolos Mountrichas, enchanted by the unique microclimate of the volcanic island, with the native Assyrtiko, traveled with the dolphins of the Aegean Sea from Evia, Central Greece, to Santorini to vinify the top quality grape in his homeland.
Our philosophy is to preserve the typical characteristics of the native varieties of the island with respect to the incomparable terroir of Santorini. Having the wine-making experience of many vintages and uncountable medals from international wine competitions, we end up with wines with strong personality, fruit purity, balance… high quality wines sealed with the raw beauty of Santorini.
