Nostos Assyrtiko 750ML
Manousakis Winery- Assyrtiko- Dry White Wine
Over the millennia the Lefka Ori Mountains of Western Crete have absorbed the quiet life cycle for thousands of the island’s native flora. When you walk these mountains in the spring it takes you on a sensory adventure filled with the scents of rosemary, thyme, sage, lavender, and chamomile. In the fall, they descend back to the soil and are absorbed and thus the quiet life cycle continues.

Soil: Schist, sandy clay loamy, 320 (1050ft) in altitude
