Diamantakis is a modern winery in Crete, in the heart of the Malevizi province. The Diamantakis family established the winery in 2007, the family have been making wine for three generations. Their vineyards, 25 hectares of vines, are in an area rich with winemaking history using varieties such as Assyrtiko, Vidiano and Mandilari.
We have their basic Assyrtiko, which is fresh, crisp and quite steely, perfect with salads and simple fish dishes. This particular wine, with a funky label is a blend of 50% Assyrtiko and 50% Vidiano. The two grapes are vinified separately in steel, then blended together to age for 3 months on their lees in oak. It has a slightly spicy honeyed nose, it has good mouthfeel, round and soft, it has good tangy pineapple fruit with a touch of vanilla and balancing acidity. Good wine.
