Pale in color with nice crisp nose along with some floral notes coming through. On the mid palate the wine displays lots of crisp minerality to match the nose along with some unique smokey notes and some citrus too. On the medium length finish the wine displays some lovely dryness and nice food friendly acidity. I really enjoyed this wine, it was one of my favs from the Kolonaki Group’s portfolio tasting. Sadly not in the LCBO but available for $29.95 a bottle in cases of 12.
From Kolonaki Group’s web site:
Following the family tradition that lasts since 1903, Estate Argyros produces the ASSYRTIKO ARGYROS. It is a dry white wine made by the variety of Assyrtiko 100%, cultivated in the private vineyard located in Episkopi Gonia. The sedulous selection of grapes from a 50-60 years old vineyard and the vinification, result to a fine dry white wine with a strong personality. Crystal-clear yellow colour, distinctively flavoured with citrus overtones. The relatively high acidity of Assyrtiko gives it a crisp freshness, while the vineyard’s extremely low performance offers body, structure and substance.
