Domaine Sigalas Santorini Assyrtiko 2016

$26.99

95 Points, Wine Advocate: “The 2016 Assyrtiko is unoaked and comes in at 14% alcohol. One of the island's benchmarks, this is always in fine form these day–and always rather hard to evaluate when it is young. Deceptively, this bottling doesn't seem intimidating on first taste, but it always hides many layers. I tend to decant them or taste them again the next day when they are young. Otherwise, you tend to miss too much. Wonderfully elegant and finishing with a salty nuance, this shows impeccable balance. Its best feature is the lingering and intense finish, with plenty of tension and grip..."

Instantly transported back to Santorini in just a small whiff. The smell of volcanic soil, salt spray and ungodly sea breezes are unmistakable. How can one smell wind?

Compared to 2015, the fruits of the 2016 vintage more upfront, the acidity more vivid, and the palate fresher. The saltiness and chalky minerality remain. Another good vintage.
