First time trying Assyrtiko from Santorini, Greece, and what a beauty it is to pair with food!
From the mouth-watering acidity to the salinity and tart, youthful citrus, lemon peel, peach, apricot, wet slate, and white blossom florals, it makes for a lovely, culinary complement.
I just wish I had held on for further aging. Ah, patience! I’ll have to invest in a few more.

Tasted next to the original ensorcelled. This was much more round and less sour with a ton of rye/bourbon vanilla, more cherries, but still raspberry jam. This also has a dark chocolate like component. Interestingly it is still very sour but compared to the regular it is not as tart. I think this helped all the sweeter flavors show in this one. Overall one of the best beers I’ve ever had. — 6 days ago

Lean, mean, crisp apple and lemon oil, fresh herbs, intensely marine-influenced minerality and salinity. Lovely Chenin-like wooliness and energizing acid on the palate. Bravo to my friend @Erik Longabardi on this profound expression of Long Island history and terroir. — 19 days ago

As far as Chardonnay’s go, this is a lovely example, not too much oak for me. — 16 days ago
