2017 Santo Santorini Assyrtiko

Pale in color with a minerally nose. On the mid palate this wine is dominated by some firm minerality and vibrant acidity. There’s a hint of smokiness to the wine, and some notes I had trouble placing. On the medium length finish the acidity lingers nicely in the mouth. Be careful what you pair this with, it’s quite lively. The LCBO say Light & Crisp? Shrug … I would give it an -88. This is a general list wine.

Pale lemon colour; the bouquet is filled with aromas of ripe pear, apple, lemon and floral notes; this light-bodied refreshing white is dry with racy acidity and shows more flavours of citrus, melon and mineral on the palate with a hint of smoke from the volcanic soils the grapes are grown on.
