A rare affordable red wine from the Greek island of Santorini, Atlantis is a complex, rich red wine with notes of pepper, cherries, leather, wood smoke and carub fruit. The wine gets its name from the legend that says that Santorini, a volcanic island which suffered a cataclysmic eruption around the year 1600 B.C., was the location of the lost city of Atlantis described by Plato. Red wines are a rarity on Santorini, which is famous for its Assyrtikos and Vinsanto, both of which are made from white grapes. Only 3% of the grapes grown on the island are red grapes, in this case Mandilaria and Mavrotragano. The wine spends six months in oak barrels, just long enough to add a bit of complexity and tannins to the fruity notes typical of Mandilaria grapes.
