Mouthwatering Santorini. This wine feels nearly crunchy with minerality, the citrusy fruit seasoned with saline...

An amazing mineral-rich and lemony Greek white now at Vintages.

My Danforth go-to wine and my summer house white. Lemony nose predicts great acidity. It's dubious that anyone can actually smell minerals but but you can taste them. Precise palate of citrus and a stoney, chalky, very dry minerality. Bright acidity, very refreshing. Perfect for cutting through garlicy and lemony greek dishes and grilled seafood. Assyrtiko with grilled calamari is classic. Not as laser focused as Sigalas but a well made wine from my favorite island in the world.

I recently discovered this one while tasting wines from Greece and loved it.

Lively acidity, citrus notes supported by a mineral finish. Lovely taste. If you see this wine on the shelf, BUY IT!
