Cuvée No. 15 Santorini Assyrtiko 2017

Wtf? This is amazing. Almost marsanne like.. super dark yellow gold that actually becomes lighter with air (Wierd but maybe it’s just my perception because the fruit goes from rich to lean with air as well) with aromas of dried almond, quince, apricot and wet hay. It needs time to open up and while it may be a ‘fat’ for my taste, there is a never ending mineral component to keep it fresh in intriguing. A benchmark wine for sure!

Santorini Aidani 2016

Nice deep gold color.
Intense and big aromas like ripped mango or yellow peach. Exotic. A bit pungent. The nose let you think it might lack acidity and freshness but it is not the case, just the opposite once in the mouth. A beautiful surprising balance. Even some slight fizz coming from nowhere. The wine is sligh oxydative.
Yummm ... a true pleasure.

Santorini Mavrotragano 2011

Shockingly good. Smooth, long tannins. Lots of dried fruit, particularly tart cherry. Good acid and good with food. I feel this wine is fairly polarizing though; even if you are a red wine drinker, you’ll either dig this wine or not like it at all. — 13 days ago

Vignes Centenaires Assyrtiko de Louros 2016

In addition to the great old-vine and oxidative elements, we still enjoyed a fairly bracing Santorini assyriko acidity and even volcanic minerallity. Bought at the winery. — a month ago
