Tasting Note

This matured Assyrtiko is an outstanding example of oak treatment. Deep lemon color, with golden highlights. The nose is vibrant with oaky elements reminiscent of vanilla, followed by citrus fruits on the background. Dry, with refreshing acidity and the classic Assyrtiko’s minerality. Oak flavors are well integrated with elegant citrus fruitiness on the palate. Persistent, long finish.

     Santorini Assyrtiko Reserve 2010

    “This is a luscious wine but has an elegant balance, thanks to the mineral undercurrent so typical in Greek wines. On the nose, toast, vanilla and smoke lead, while flavors of apple, peach and flower follow. Soft and generous in style, but finishes clean”.
