Instantly transported back to Santorini in just a small whiff.
The smell of volcanic soil, salt spray and ungodly sea breezes are unmistakable.
How can one smell wind?

Oyster shell, sea salt, citrus peels, green apples and white peaches. Tart and great acidity. Slight rubber notes. So unique and balanced.

Brings me back to santorini. Really lovely. That seductively rich body. Two years of age brings out the oiliness in a nice way but this wine ever so fresh like drinking a Greek sunset.

A couple of years in the bottle has lured out a hint of petrol on the nose. Deep concentration with flavours of lemon, gunpowder, smoky mineral and salt.

Compared to 2015, the fruits of the 2016 vintage more upfront, the acidity more vivid, and the palate fresher. The saltiness and chalky minerality remain. Another good vintage.

Clean fresh fun I do appreciate this in a white. Assyrtikko seems like a fun wine to get for them hot months ahead!
