Η άποψη του Mark Squires στο Wine Advocate
Συνεργάτης του Robert Parker για την Ελλάδα


he 2011 Santorini “Estate” is Argyros’ oak-aged (only 20%, though) Assyrtiko. For all the feeling of depth and fullness on the first attack and power on the finish of this big Assyrtiko, the most remarkable thing about this wine is how it maintains its elegance. The oak is a footnote, adding a little persistence to the finish, but the wine overall is simply beautiful for its charm and balance. As it sits in the glass and warms, you can taste the oak a bit more. Neither the oak nor the wine is overly obvious. Now, granted that some (me included) would prefer wholly unoaked versions, I can’t let philosophy get in the way here and this bottling handles the modest oak brilliantly. This is a very fine vintage for Argyros up and down the line. Nicely done—this might yet be my favorite dry from Argyros. Drink now-2019. Βαθμολογία: 92/100
