I love the bracing acidity of this Greek grape variety grown in the Clare Valley, South Australia. So clean, so lean and limey! - Manda Joyce, OWC

Assyrtiko is originally from Greece and is certainly an unusual grape variety. And to make it ever weirder, this one is from Australia! Made by the famous producer Jim Barry, this has all the lean, fresh and zesty characteristics I love about Assyrtiko. - Katy Barker, OWC

I got hooked on Assyrtiko after a trip to Santorini where it's widely planted. Due to climate change, more regions are experimenting with this drought resistant variety which offers searing acidity and salinity. - Aljoscha Wright, OWC
