Domaine Economou

Oikonomoy Crete Assyrtiko 2013

Terrific core acidity and other assyrtiko characteristics blended with the best qualities of mace ration and oxidation. Very versatile. — a month ago

Tsantali

Kormilitsa Cabernet Sauvignon Limnio 2014

Sixth and last bottle of our Greece exploration. Mount Athos region and Cab Sauv/Limnio blend. Terrific wine, delivering exactly what I was missing in the 100% Limnio. Fruit forward, quite tannic and lots of drinking pleasure. Greece has certainly got a spot in my drinking preference. Next step: the higher end wines from Greece! — a month ago

Glinavos

Paleokerisio Traditional Semi-sparkling Ioannina Orange 2016

A friend who works in a wine shop brought it to go with Morrocan tanjine cooked food. Had it later- pleasantly sweet and orange peel flavor, then tangy, zingy at the end. A brown orange in color and the texture is slightly syrupy. Something saves it from being like cough syrup though. Wonky and worth a try. — 5 days ago

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....

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!
