Responding to the upward price pressure inherent to the island of Santorini, Paris and team have begun sourcing Monemvasia (not genetically related to Malvasia, despite the name) from the nearby Cycladic island of Paros and blending it 50/50 with the press-juice Assyrtiko that used to go into ‘A/a’ (now discontinued). The result, while not appellation Santorini, is a gloriously drinkable new expression of the southern Aegean from the acknowledged master of Santorini.

Ratings & Reviews


89 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2019 Am Assyrtiko / Monemvasia is an equal blend, unoaked and coming in at 14.5% alcohol. Grapes for this wine are sourced from both Santorini and the island of Paros (where Monemvasia is a signature grape). This new brand wasn't so exciting last year, but this might be the year it rounds into form. It's great now, and it has some chance to improve. Sensually textured, long on the finish and nicely concentrated, this is ripe and fills the mouth beautifully. It tastes great. It is well structured too. How well will it age? There is no track record, but the grapes can certainly age a bit. Let's be cautious. It's delicious now. That's a hint." - Mark Squires (30th Jun 2020)
