A lovely discovery on the LCBO general list, providing a great example of the finds you can get out of the Vintages offerings.

Medium-intense aromas of Meyer lemon zest, acacia, honeysuckle, cantaloupe, slight salinity.

On the palate, white nectarine, lemon, honeyed notes and a bitter almond / mineral finish, with well-balanced acid and alcohol. Medium+ almost creamy finish, this is more opulent than most Assyrtiko.

Great value. Tasted October 2016.
