95 pt Greek White! | Santorini Sensation!
SHIPPING NOW

This is one of the finest Greek whites made!

One sip of this amazing Assyrtiko by Sigalas and you will swear you are on the island of Santorini.

The 2016 vintage is full of beautiful citrus and saline notes in a dry, mineral driven finish.  It also boasts honey and lemon along with incredible aromas of sea-breeze and a hint of saline undertones.  Dry with bright acidity, it has wonderful texture.

This is a refreshing white than can be enjoyed now; however, it has beautiful grip and structure that will allow it to be cellared and enjoyed over the next decade - where it will evolve and become even more graceful.  

From organically farmed vineyards, it is unfortunate that so little of this wine is available.  

But, while supplies last, enjoy it with seafood, seafood and seafood!

$29.95 per bottle / $359.40 per case

Summary


THE WINE ADVOCATE

95 / 100


"One of the island's benchmarks... Wonderfully elegant and finishing with a salty nuance, this shows impeccable balance. Its best feature is the lingering and intense finish, with plenty of tension and grip...Two days later, it still preened in its power and precision, fresh as a daisy and wholly unevolved. (The salt was back, too.) The gripping finish that coated the palate was simply impressive. This is another beauty from Sigalas, something that has a lot of upside potential still.... It's hard to overlook the superlative combination of concentration and intensity."
