Winemaker's Notes

Thalassitis is a bone-dry wine with a delicate honeysuckle aroma and a crisp, mineral finish. A white wine of a strong personality that will age beautifully for 3-5 years if ideal storage conditions are provided. Served at 10 degrees Celcius. Combined perfectly with seafood and grilled salmon. Can also be served with lamb.

    Rating: 91/100 - As reviewed by Wine & Spirits Magazine on 08/09. This has a yeasty richness that fills out its chalky flavors, and a hint of juicy green pear fruit that adds succulence. It's reserved and elegant, a Santorini for a plateau de fruits de mer enjoyed overlooking the ocean.
