The 2016 Assyrtiko is the screwcapped version, not the upper-level Estate Santorini that has some oak. As with last year's comparison of the Atlantis blend and this "regular" Assyrtiko, the difference here is less in concentration (although it has just a little more) than in a bit more steel and a juicier, tighter finish. This year, too, it adds gloriously fresh fruit, finishing with waves of up-front flavor that not all Assyrtiko delivers. This walks down the middle of the road, showing precision and focus, but it also has a fruitier demeanor than the upper level usually produces. It's a nice compromise. It should make people swoon while it is young and fresh. I am a little less sure of what becomes of it as it ages, but it will hold reasonably well, too.
Just as good as the one we had in Greece - They produce one that is aged in oak, I am interested in it.
