Winemaker Notes

Bright, clear yellow color. Dry with a distinct aromas of citrus and flowers, combined with hints of smoke and minerals from the volcanic soil. Full-bodied, well-balanced with intense flavors and long finish.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
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.

Assyrtiko

View all wine

A crisp white variety full of zippy acidity and with a striking mineral character, Assyrtiko comes from the volcanic Greek island of Santorini, but is grown increasingly wide throughout the country today. The reasons for its popularity are plentiful: it retains its acid and mineral profile in a hot climate, blends well with other grapes and can also withstand some age. Flavors often found in Assyrtiko and its blends include lemon zest, passion fruit, pineapple, flint and fennel. It is versatile when matched with food; try it with oysters, shrimp, salmon as well as grilled chicken, tomatoes and asparagus.
