Item #46683
Size: 750ml
Type: White Wine
Country: Greece

"Solid in the mid-palate, it is a wine that handles its oak well at this point in its life, showing a fairly light touch. Bright, with some penetration on the finish, it has good persistence and it is quite tasty. For those who go with the flow when it comes to oak and Assrytiko, this is well done."

2013 Skouras Moscofilero

"The color is light white-yellow. Opulent aromas of white flowers, light and fresh and honeysuckle are revealed, rounded out with notes of rose petal and passion fruit. Bright, joyful acidity that is positively refreshing leads on to a surprisingly long finish of orange rind and a whisper of white pepper."

2013 Sigalas Santorini

"Pale Yellow, with green hues. Aromatic, with citrus fruit and minerality. Minerality is evident, as a result of Santorini’s unique terroir. Quite “austere” as wine, with the acidity being the back-bone of the wine, allowing it to age. Petrol notes and honey-suckle appear in aged Assyrtikos, similar to the German and Alsatian Rieslings."

2013 Gai'a Thalassitis White

"The 2013 Thalassitis is the winery’s flagship, unoaked and sourced from ungrafted, old vines (70-80 years) Assyrtiko. In its youth, this is quite aggressive, the acidity lacing into the palate and leaving a lemony nuance. There is a lot of tension on that finish, notable grip and some very nice fruit, too. I expect this to calm down a bit, and it should drink much better this summer, but it is actually quite exciting right now. This does seem to be a rather pointed Thalassistis, though, eschewing any hints of lushness for precision and tension. I loved the juicy finish a lot. Given the aggressive beginning, it was clear that this was a wine that needed some reexamination with more air. Two days later it was much more transparent, with the acidity still bracing, but not throwing off as much lemon. There was a touch of flint, which made me a bit wary, but it was currently overwhelmed by the acidity and fresh fruit. Hopefully, it will continue to move in the right direction and it did seem to improve with more air. For fun, I gave it a few extra hours of breathing on Day 2, and it seemed just great. By the time it hit 65F, after hours of aeration, it seemed quite full in the mouth and completely impressive. Mostly, it has a nuance that could only be called steely, a word used by the owner quite correctly."
