"The 2016 Assyrtiko is unoaked and comes in at 13.5% alcohol. Clean, fresh, beautifully balanced and just a little earthy, this has good concentration, length on the finish and a serious feel. There's just a hint of lemon, but that will pull into the whole well. It's a wine with the solidity to hold up to food or the freshness to enjoy on its own. It will probably do a bit better with food. A very good value, it should hold nicely for several years, too, maybe more."
ABOUT THE WINE
100% Assyrtiko grown in volcanic soils and aged in stainless. Vines grown on their own rootstock and are trained in the traditional basket style to protect from wind and conserve water.
This wine is a classic benchmark of the variety and its homeland. A vibrant aromatic cocktail of sea-breeze freshness and citrus fruits with honeyed undertones. Bonedry, brightly acidic with a textural mineral smokiness and a food-begging finish.
