Assyrtiko

Argyros

Santorini Assyrtiko 2016

My first Greek wine. I love my ouzo still. Don't like mythos beer. Loving Greece and Greek and their anarchist ways. And tarmasalata and skordalia 😋

Light and pale green(ish) 👁️

Whole citrusy (fruit, pith and Peel) with some noted maturity of 🧀 ,olive brine And seasalt. And Some freshly chopped green herbs close by 👃
It screams: I'm complex!

High acidity attack.

Then this assorted citrus variety with the herbs on the side. Many layers of taste come with sweetness and bitterness hints coming and going 👄

Long and pleasent 🎯

This is next level shit.

Paired well with my baby's simple quinoa with added tahini and shug (Yemen chilly sauce).
Plain oysters or grilled fish/seafood would be more appropriate.

Not on the cheap side (119 nis) for my usual white allowance but this is from better territory so good vfm.

More like this please....

Grande Reserve Santorini Assyrtiko 2014

Petrol and tropical aromas give way to honeyed pineapple, citrus blossom, vanilla, and guava fruit with a spice moved acid driven finish - excellent creamy texture with toned down acidity from the age this paired perfectly with grilled octopus over fava bean purée — 8 days ago

Domaine Sigalas

Aα Santorini Assyrtiko Athiri 2017

Assyrtiko is slowly turning into my favorite white varietal and Assyrtiko from Santorini will soon be my new Chablis...
Nose of pear, honey, lemon curd and a huge mineral note of chalk. The palate is intense with a strong acid backbone along which lemon plays a subtle part. A strong grip, some chalky notes here and there too. The finish is wide and long with this curdy, chalky music that plays for a very long while. Need more of that, now!

34 Santorini Ancestral Vines Dry Assyrtiko 2016

A new favorite! This is a flavorful wine that blends with food easily. Flavors of green apple lemon and orange blossom. It also has hints of minerals-salt due to the surrounding ocean. — 2 months ago
