This was bangin! Lots of saltiness. And hints of honey. Not as crisp and lemony as most Assyrtiko wines. Lots more depth and intricacies. 80% Assyrtiko, 10% Aidani, and 10% Athiri — 3 months ago
I need to travel to Santorini, Greece, again! — 4 years 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.

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.

Very unique Greek wine, very hard to describe the nose with a nuttiness — a year ago
Crisp with a bit touch of oak, excellent. — 4 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. — 4 years ago
