Wild Ferment Santorini Assyrtiko 2017

I love the concept of a wild fermented wine. This one is from an 80 year old, ungrafted vineyard. Has bit of linseed oil and barnyard spunk in the nose, which I’m not used to finding in a white wine. Has a slightly oaky flavor, but not as much as what I don’t like about over-oaked chardonnays. Very yellow color. A little spritzy. Enjoyable. Very interesting. I far prefer this to most chardonnays. — 2 days ago

Thalassitis Santorini Assyrtiko 2017

The aromatics were typical of a Mediterranean white with flowers and minerality more so than fruit driven. Initially a creaminess to the palate which finishes quite mineral/salty. The saltiness dominates somewhat at the end which finishes bone dry. Following day a great match with fresh Pacific Oysters. — 4 months ago

Monograph Moschofilero

This bottle is punching outside it’s weight class. Gorgeous and complex.

The hue is interesting - soft pink like watered down grapefruit. Slightly peachy pink.

The grapefruit trend continues on the nose too, mixed with beeswax and yellow pear skin. Also, do I get bubblegum? Or green apple jolly rancher? Cool.

Quite dry and acidic. Tart but not cringingly so. Apricot and underripe peach dominate but it doesn’t get old at all. Can’t wait to find more of this.

Vinsanto Santorini Assyrtiko 2006

My first Assyrtiko Vinsanto. What a pleasant surprise! Structure of a PX, but with fantastic acidity. Tastes like a PX/Madeira love child 😀. — 8 months ago

Agiorgitiko Red Dry Wine 2013

It’s been a few years since I last opened one of these, and this is the first of the 2013s. They are ageing great. Super aromatic, perfumed berries and herbs. Cherries and spices and structure and finish. — 2 months ago

S Agiorgitiko & Syrah 2011

This red wine is from the Peloponnese which is the southernmost part of the Greek mainland. Agiorgitiko is native to this peninsula. It is rich Ruby in the glass with aromatics of plum, prune, licorice and tar. For the warm sunny conditions this is lacking the fruit depth compared to say an Australian red - more like an Etna red. Finishes with fine powdery tannins and an astringent touch. The following day the palate reminded me of a Tuscan Sangiovese with sour cherry and fine grainy tannins. Enjoyable - would buy again. — 3 months ago
