The IdeaEPTA (seven in Greek) is the epitome of a fascinating, pioneering exploration of Santorini sub-terroirs by Domaine Sigalas. Seven rigorously selected vine parcels from seven villages across the island (Oia, Imerovigli, Vourvoulos, Fira, Pyrgos, Megalochori and Akrotiri) shape the canvas of this unique project. Each year we harvest and vinify each village separately. What we consider to be the very best of all seven is used for EPTA wine. For 2021 vintage, the chosen village is Fira.
WinemakingTypical white vinification in stainless steel tank under controlled temperature. Lees contact for 12 months with periodic lees stirring (batonnage).
Tasting NoteBenchmark Santorini Assyrtiko aromas with lemony notes. Nose and palate with the characteristic minerality, complemented with floral hints on the background. Notable salinity. Long finish.
