A 50:50 blend of local varieties Vidiano and Assyrtiko, aged for 3 month in barrel, this has exotic tropical fruit flavours and a creamy finish with a touch of herbs and butterscotch.
The Diamantakis winery was founded in 2007 by the eponymous family: Ioannis, Michalis and Zacharias. The first two are third-generation vine-growers who have extensive experience in viticulture and are in charge of the winery’s vineyards; whereas Zacharias, having studied oenology, is involved in the process of winemaking and promoting the wine. It is located southwest of the city of Heraklion, outside the village of Kato Assites. The region has a long history in vine cultivation and the production of wines and spirits.
Diamantakis has something of a cult following in greek wine circles and the limited production wines are much in demand.
