Expert Reviews
  • Robert Parker
    "The 2015 Santorini is an Assyrtiko coming in at 13.5% alcohol. This old vines white (40 to 80 years) is simply gripping, filled with youthful, unevolved fruit and a certain salty nuance on the end. (I think that is a descriptor too often used–but it seems to fit here.) Elegant, yet concentrated enough for this level, this is impressive on many fronts for the regular Assyrtiko. As it airs and warms, it seems wonderfully fresh and completely delicious, yet always persistent. Admittedly, it is not exactly the most concentrated Santorini as it airs out, but its personality and flavor make up for that just now. This is a very impressive "regular" Santorini and a terrific value." The Wine Advocate, 91 Points
