Dry, Still, Orange, Assyrtiko, Ages well
Shocking 'orange' wine from the Gaia winery, which praises both the style of orange wines and the magical terroir of Santorini. With Assyrtiko that comes from old autochthonous vineyards and matures for 4 years in clay spherical containers is undoubtedly one of the best Greek wines of this style.
Its color is between deep gold and orange. Its aroma is ripe and very complex with pineapple and apricot compote, roasted quince, orange peel, tea, dough and earthy notes reminiscent of gunpowder. Its taste is rich, with a nice balance between the high alcohol, the crunchy acidity and the minimal tannins that the wine acquires from the short stay of the grape juice with the skins. The duration of the aftertaste is at unimaginable levels. It is a wine that can evolve for a few more years. Give him some time before serving to ‘breathe’ and unfold all his gifts.
