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.

Very salty. A bit closed and short right now — 13 days ago
Really lovely salinity, fresh acid, some herbs. Would love to taste this in a decade. — 11 days ago
Terrific core acidity and other assyrtiko characteristics blended with the best qualities of mace ration and oxidation. Very versatile. — a month ago
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
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! — 14 days ago
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
