2016 Assyrtiko, Argyros, Santorini

Assyrtiko deserves more attention. Some superb examples are being made, and this is an ideal introduction. There’s crisp lime and pear with a lovely fresh mineral lift. The palate races with energy and has a lip-smacking texture, while the flavours last for minutes.

TASTING NOTES

Appetisingly fresh, zippy nose: lime juice, pears and salty sea-spray. Beautifully fresh, dry and intense with incisive, but modulated, acidity and an elegantly textural feel. Fruit in the citrus spectrum. Palate goes on and on.
