About the wine.
We do not compromise on the quality of our wines, but focus on their exquisite taste, wine characteristics and elegance. The grapes are harvested from 40-year-old vineyards and cold-macerated for 5 days, followed by classic red winemaking. The wine is then aged in stainless steel tanks on lees for 6 months and then in French oak barriques for an additional 2 years. A leaner, more elegant expression of the Mavrotragano personality, this wine usually requires two years of bottle aging to fully blossom, but can be aged for up to 10 years after vintage.
The wine is full of bright red fruit flavors, spicy aromas, and toasty oak. This wine has a perfect balance of power and delicacy, and has great aging potential. It is best served with spicy dishes and red meat.
Mavrotragano can also be enjoyed with long aging.
About the winery.
Over the course of
two centuries, Esteito Argyros has evolved with the times.
Over the past two centuries, Esteito Argyros has evolved with the times and now has a new winery building in the middle of the vineyards. The building was designed to adapt to the unique environment of Santorini, but still meet all the strict standards required for the production of high quality wine. Over two centuries of growing grapes and producing wines, Esteito Argyros has earned an excellent, not transient, reputation. The unique volcanic soil, the harsh climate, our heritage of grapes and our passion for what we do make for the best wines Santorini has to offer.
Winemaking is all about teamwork.
Santorini is a volcanic island with strong winds and sunshine. The soil is composed of volcanic ash, sand, pumice and lava. It is a very harsh environment for plants, with no organic matter or water in the soil. However, thanks to this environment, Santorini has been spared from phylloxera and we have been able to preserve the original vines that have not been grafted to this day. Viticulture in Santorini is very challenging, but the result is a wine with a very unique terroir. Scientific research is the key to our continued evolution. To learn from the past and to respect the land, our farming methods are organic, following sustainable guidelines. For example, we use discarded grape skins and stems as fertilizer after the harvest. By going back to what was brought to us, we have been able to enrich this soil as a result. No pesticides are used and the vineyards are plowed with donkeys every year. All grapes are grown by the original rhizomes, pruned by hand into baskets, and are not irrigated. Our vineyards are planted with indigenous Santorini varieties such as Assyrtiko, Aidani and Mavrotragano. Assyrtiko is a grape that strongly reflects its terroir, characterized by its strong acidity, concentrated minerality and firm salinity, leaving a long and complex aftertaste. Both young and old Assyrtiko grapes always reflect the island's volcanic soils and harsh climate, and are characterized by strong acidity, concentrated minerality, and firm salinity, leaving a long and complex finish. Both young and old Assyrtiko vines always reflect the volcanic soils and harsh climate of the island.
Donkeys are still an important winemaking partner
The Mavrotragano grape is native to Santorini, but until recently it was only used to make a few sweet wines and was almost extinct. It was almost extinct until recently, when producers in Santorini started to grow more and more vines from the few remaining old trees, and now it is grown to make excellent red wine.
Mavrotragano variety, which means "black and fresh" in Greek
