If you don't know this grape and/or this producer, you should. This is 100% Assyrtiko grapes from vines that are 100-120 years old on ungrafted vines.  Phylloxera doesn't live in the dry sandy soils of Santorini.  Light golden in color.  The nose has citrus, salinity, and slight chalk.  Light bodied.  On the palate, this is crisp with high energy.  Great acidity.  The citrus (orange/lemon) comes thru along with the salinity.  Penetrating.  Long finish.  This is drinking well now and probably should be consumed in the next couple of years.  It will work better with food, but is fine on its own.  A nice match for grilled veggies (even asparagus) or seafood.
