2018 Assyrtiko Santorini (Argyros, Estate)
Estate Argyros, Assyrtiko, Santorini, Greece 2018100% Assyrtiko SAVORY CITRUS, CRUSHED SEA SHELL SALINTY & SMOKE The island of Santorini was formed over the past 200,000 years via volcanic eruptions. The last of these (4,000 years ago) covered the surrounding archipelago in a devastating layer of volcanic ash, and, today, the volcanic, black, alkaline soil keeps vineyards phylloxera-free. This allows this cuvée’s vines to date back 150 years. This glassful of ocean breeze and savory citrus is bright but full-bodied and can hold up gorgeously to richer seafood dishes. It's as close to sitting on the Santorini beach without expensive jet lag. Serving Suggestions: Blue-fin tuna nigiri. Smoked salmon latkes. Fresh goat cheese.
