Estate Argyros Santorini Assyrtiko 2018

From the island of Santorini in Greece, this is a sound assyrtiko from Estate Argyros. Assyrtiko typically has very high acidity and a body and structure that is closer to a red wine in style. In this case, the wine has distinct and very attractive saline and mineral aromatics, and some phenolic character. The palate is dry and it has very high, rising acidity that is integrated into the fruit. It is more medium than full bodied. Drink now or over the next few years. Rating: Good.
