Sigalas Mavrotragano

Said to be one of the rarest and the most expensive grape variety in Greece! Mavrotragano translates as black-crunchy and you will feel that in the dense tannins that envelope the palate. A rich but wild and exuberant wine, both sophisticated and untamed. Lots of dark and red berries, sweet spice and dried fruit. Big red meat, rich dishes with lots of herbs, strong cheese pair well.

Domaine Sigalas, Santorini, Aegean Islands

The winery of Domaine Sigalas was initially located in the traditional canava of the Sigalas family. Paris Sigalas, a professor of mathematics, professionalised and modernised the winery, with a new building near the village of Oia in 1998. The soil of Santorini, along with the ancient pruning techniques employed in the vineyards (the ‘giristi’ and ‘koulouri’ or ‘klada’), combine to make their grapes unique the world over. The soil is sandy — a mixture of volcanic ash and pumice — the spring wind is fierce, and the summer sun scorching, factors which have combined to create a peculiar and unique method of cultivation and a powerful, full-bodied white wine, with famous minerality and acidity. Domaine Sigalas is one of the best wineries on the island, producing a range of both PDO Assyrtiko wines, along with vinifications of other indigenous Santorini varieties, including Aidani, Mavrotragano, Mandilaria and Athiri.
