An extraordinary combination of two extraordinary varieties, from both ends of Greece. Ktima Vourvoukeli and Domaine Foivos have combined skills and efforts to create an exceptional wine called East-West. A wine that combines East and West, the new with the old, the modern with the traditional. A harmonious blend of 50% Assyrtiko from Avdira and 50% Robola from the island of Kefalonia. The wine from Assyrtiko blends harmoniously with wine aged in amphorae at a depth of 25 metres, at the bottom of the Ionian Sea. The colour is deep golden, with amber hues. Aromas of citrus, orange peel and exotic fruits, slightly salty and complex. The body is elegant, rich, with very good balance and a lingering finish. Ideal for fish, favas, goat cheese and fruit.

Assyrtiko (Assyrtico or Asyrtiko) is probably the most emblematic wine grape variety in Greece. It originates and is best grown on the volcanic island of Santorini in the Aegean Sea. The variety is quite versatile and its wines can be found in many styles, from fresh and mineral white wines to rich, nut-dessert, known as Vinsanto. On the island of Santorini there are up to 70-year-old vines, and, of course, this age affects the quality of wine - yields decrease and the concentration of aromas in the fruit gives the potential for production of complex and rich wines. The volcanic soils of the vineyards on the island do not allow the spread of phylloxera and here the vines do not need to be grafted on rootstocks. The harsh climatic conditions of the island - strong winds and hot sun - determine the unconventional form of growing Assyrtico - in "baskets" whose walls are made of plant stems and leaves, thus providing shelter for the fruit and protecting them from strong winds. Limited water resources in the soil force growers to plant the vines farther apart than generally accepted standards. Assirtiko is an oxidation-resistant variety used by Santorini winemakers in the production of Vinsanto sweet wines. By controlling the level of oxidation, darker wines with the characteristics of fig, coffee, kirsch and chocolate can be obtained. In the form of dry white wine, Assirtiko has a yellow-golden color with aromas of pear, apple and citrus, as well as fine minerality in the aftertaste. Naturally high acidity means that Assyrtico wines can be aged for many years.More wines of the same variety
