Greek wine evening, wine #4
Santorini Assyrtiko - a wine where the absolut lack of fruit is an asset!
Rich yet austere, salty, mineral, with great tension & energy, volcanic minerality, salty wet stones and just a tiny whiff of lemon peel.
Amazing depth, purity and length. This is sooo good! — 2 months ago
Wine #4 of the night. The winner of the night! Fresh, young and juicy. The 15.7 alcohol was completely hidden behind plump, juicy fruits, soft oak and spice and superbly supple tannins. These wines age beautifully but the purity of a younger vintage is truly awesome. — 6 months ago
Thanksgiving wine #4. This is a new bottling for me, but I’ve enjoyed Stephan’s wines in the past. Aromatically, one can’t ask for much more than this. Delicate floral notes mixed with powerful fruit and savory character. The palate follows with similar traits, but the weight is incredible here. All of that complexity walking an ethereal tightrope. Beautiful & a perfect wine for an unusual Thanksgiving. — 6 months ago
