This Assyrtiko is so refreshing with lovely notes of citrus blossom, orange zest, hazelnut, orchard fruit, and an amazing flinty minerality. Tasted February 2018.

Lovely, highly aromatic nose features stony, chalky mineral along with lime, grapefruit, and herbal notes. It's medium-full bodied on the palate with a very nice chalky mineral texture, fine acids, and mineral-driven grapefruit flavours. Powerful mid-palate and finishes long and clean with herbally notes. Well-balanced overall. Tasted Nov/2017.
