Now this reminds me of my wedding almost 10 years ago! Rich, complex with white peach, mushroom, chamomile and surfer. Will be buying a bottle of this!

Wow. Lime/lemon custard, mineral. Dried flowers. Wonderful tension between snappy and broad/rich.

This is the perfect example of a salty island wine. Rich and round texture, pointing to its warm climate, though so tangy and mineral. Toss in a bit of funk from wild ferment and this is an incredibly complex wine

Yellow Apple, pear and lemon. Fresh herbs. M+ acid. M body. Balanced with a very long finish of citrus fruits. Fantastic!

#Obsessed with this #Assyrtiko from #Gaia #2015 ❤️ This wine explodes on your tongue bright Citrus & big Acidity on first impact. Super Briny with slight herbal and white pepper notes. Benefits from decanting while you sip it... as the layers of flavors unfold as it warms up a little bit. This is a complex wine, that paired perfectly with my Spinach & Feta Pites, Greek Croquettes & Broiled Red Snapper @TheGreekTribeca ❤️ This wine is #WildFerment (they use only wild yeast from the grapes skin to ferment the wine). If you can find this, #DrinkThis ❤️🍷🍷🍷 #WineIsLove
