Rouvalis Assyrtiko 2022

MXN $795

Grape: 100% Assyrtiko

Region: Aigialeia, northern Peloponnese, Greece

Wine Notes:  Assyrtiko is Greece’s most important grape but coming from the mountains is even more unique. The fragant aromas of orange blossoms and citrus and the palate is fresh and quite stony, with lively acidity, a touch of dried herbs, grapefruit and finishing with a hint of wet rock minerality. A truly enjoyable fresh wine.

Good to have it with: Mediterranean food, kebabs, and seafood.

The Winery: Rouvalis

Rouvalis wine originates from one of the most unique terroirs in all of Greece. Their vineyards are located in northern Peloponnese, in the mountainous region above the town of Aigion. The landscape here is truly stunning. Small parcels of vines are scattered on the hilly terraces overlooking the Corinthian Gulf.

Rouvalis Winery was founded in 1990 by Angelos Rouvalis. Originally from Aigion, he studied oenology in Bordeaux. Having returned to his homeland, Angelos planted his first vineyard and in 1994 built a model gravity-fed winery. It was the first winery of this kind in Greece, built on a rock at 6 consecutive levels. Each level has its own specific function, from grape pressing to wine maturation.

Today, 30 years since its foundation, the winery has passed into the hands of the new generation headed by Theodora Rouvali alongside her partner, Antonio Ruiz Pañego, a Spanish oenologist who previously worked at some of the best Grand Cru of Burgundy.
