Nice acidity and balanced
with citrus, salinity, apricot, and minerality @ Pelekanos in Santorini — 3 months ago
Outstanding, this wine has so much more than simply being sweet. Piney and resinous, it fluctuates between flavors of sugar dusted dried apricots, candied lemons, marzipan, and honeycomb with pine sap, pollen, chaparral, white balsamic, mint and blanched herbs adding a more savory complexity. Unctuous and long. 80% Assyrtiko, 10% Aidani, 10% Athiri.

All flint and rocks on the nose. Salt on the palate, very tart acid,a bit of honey/melon sweetness, and lingering minerals. A bit like a Txakolina, bit not as high acid/effervescent. Wonderful with hummus and feta. Explore Greece online wine class. — 4 months ago
Made from sun dried Assyrtiko grapes, aged in old French oak casks for over a decade. The wine is riddled with volatile acidity, not surprising considering the production methods - and while that overwhelms the nose, it adds so much ethereal brightness to the palate. Prunes, lemon extract, fig, molasses, sweet medicinal herbs, wintergreen, quinine, pine sap, and dried flowers. Viscous, yet focused and expansive. 90% Assyrtiko, 5% Aidani, 5% Athiri.

Crisp with a bit touch of oak, excellent. — 2 years ago
A beautifully soft, inviting expression of Santorini, this blend of the island's three core white grape varieties gains further polish through its ageing in French oak barrels. Salty with a long, nervy finish - it imitates so much of the island in its sea spray, oyster shell, pressed wildflowers, green olives, and ripe pear skin tones. Fresh and absolutelylovely. 75% Assyrtiko, 15% Athiri and 10% Aïdani. — 3 years ago
