Home Wines White Ousyra Serifiotiko

Ousyra Serifiotiko

This grape is so rare, it's not mentioned as one of the 1,368 wine varieties in 'Wine Grapes' by Jancis Robinson and colleagues! Austere, dumb bouquet, full on concentrated vinous without any distinctive fruity character. Impressively powerful, bone dry, balanced, smooth and almost buttery despite there being no oak ageing. Very clean, and needs to be given time in the glass. Hints of salinity and lemon zest. Incredible what happens on inhospitable sandy vineyards so close to the sea. Impressive!
As low as £24.50

The OuSyra Winery is a family run winery on the island of Syros, creating terroir-driven wines from rare indigenous Cycladic varieties. 

Ungrafted Syros Island Serifiotiko grapes give this wine distinctive aromas of citrus fruit, well integrated alcohol and a dry refreshing aftertaste of Cycladic island minerality, which comes from its immediate proximity to the Aegean Sea.

OuSyra, Syros, Aegean Islands

OuSyra was founded by Edward and his wife Eileen, in Chroussa, a small village on the south of Syros. They started with just two wines, a white from local Serifiotiko and rosé from Fokiano, using native Naxos grapes. The 2018 vintage was vinified for the first time in their privately owned winery and has received great reviews ever since. Both wines are distinguished by their aromatic, fruity character and freshness, both in the nose and pallet. The winery is still family-run on Syros, creating terroir-driven wines from rare indigenous Cycladic varieties.
