Assyrtiko is quickly becoming one of my favorite white grapes. Light golden in color. The nose is mostly about minerals and salinity but there are some pears as well. The pears are a bit stronger on the palate, but the underlying minerality and saline finish are still present. This is light bodied but very energetic. Moderate acidity. Medium finish. Of course, this is made for seafood or lighter Mediterranean cuisine, but it drinks nice on its own. I really have no idea if this will age but I would think it is better in its first couple of years.
