if you see "Assyrtiko" on a #wine list, just order it. You'll love it, I promise. It's the perfect white #wine for a sweltering summer, refreshing AND interesting AND affordable. Here at the surprisingly great new resto @MotelMorris. (And #Greek wineries: you need to do a better job of promoting how delicious your #wines can be!)

Apples, peaches and olives on the nose. Great minerality, with spicy finish. Oaky on the palate and a complex citrucy back lingering. Very good

Out of all the Santorini, this one stood out...unripe peaches, flint and a perfect balance of Santorini salinity

Suuuuch a good wine. Aromatic with loads of slate and flint, lemon, lemon pith, green apple skin, ripe grapefruit and an acacia floral thing. High acid, good length with slight phenolics.

Stony citrus peel. With hints of meat. Lemon juicy and crushed stones with intense acidity. Lingers with light dried meat and mouth watering acidity.
