If I Could Buy Only One – July 24th VINTAGES Release

We asked our writers, “If you could buy only one wine from this release, which one would it be and why?”

Estate Argyros Assyrtiko 2019

($45.95, Kolonaki Group Inc.)

Michael Godel – Let me tell you something about the Estate Argyros Assyrtiko 2019 Santorini gem in 100 ways. Varietal assyrtiko raised in 100 per cent stainless steel and of a source that is unequivocally a minimum 100 year-old ungrafted vines, some as old as 120. Volcanic, sandy, the source as real as any in the world, the acumen, tradition and knowledge passed down like mythologies come true, generation and generation. This is wonderful, exciting, satisfying and quenching wine, as good as it gets and from the mouth of ancient babes. So crisp, salty and fine. From the black sands of Perissa Beach, to Firá and the whitewashed walls of Oia. Do not miss this opportunity to take in Santorini. As good a white wine purchase as any Bourgogne Blanc at twice the cost.
