Clean, medium intensity, golden color. 'Closed' nose which suggests several hours before consumption transfusion to 'open' offering aromas of ripe citrus fruits and herbs like chamomile. 'Sexy' dry mouth with acidity that challenges our palate, but immediately come to mouth mature aromas of bergamot and jasmine to restore perfect balance. The 'oryktotita' oozes both the nose and mouth while the density of the wine has rather more like red than white. Long duration, 'crystal' finish. It gets 10 years aging to a minimum, but would really like to see the development in 20 years from now.
Without filtration, clarification and addition of sulfur, with indigenous yeasts from grapes organically grown, single vineyard vineyard and ancient climates rather talk about the definition of the concept of terroir, if it really exists ...
The king of Assyrticos
Review by Antonio Marchesini (Posted on 13/10/2013)
Gold colour, and a remarkable complexity on the nose driven by mineral aromas and supplemented by aromas of citrus, flowers and honey. On taste it has a high sharp acidity and mineral and saline features. It's high in alcohol (15%). This Assyrtico is the coming together of all Assyrtico varieties.

100% Assyrtiko advanced maturity in the vineyard 'Grinder'. Fermentation with selected yeasts in stainless steel tanks and matured on the lees delicate, for 10 months. Bottled unfiltered and without added sulfur. Deep golden lemon in appearance, which gives way. Great complexity on the nose, with all the features of Assyrtiko (mineral character, honey) but given with a rare density. Very full in the mouth, feeling a touch closer to the tannins, high, sharp acidity. Aftertaste that impresses with its duration. Accompanies intense complex flavors, soup, bean soup, pate (12 - 14 ° C.) can be aged for 8-12 years after harvest.
