It was a beautiful day yesterday in CT and we decided it was the perfect occasion for an Assyrtiko. After all, the weather isn’t supposed to be the most pleasant through the weekend so we might as well toast to the warmth while we could!
The Santorini Assyrtiko from SantoWines is an incredibly aromatic wine that filled the room with its floral notes and citrus fruits immediately after opening.
On the palate the citrus followed through. Quite weighty in the mouth and a bit of salty minerality that we can attribute to the soils. The wine has a great acidity to is that maks it crisp and refreshing with great length. I would definitely want to pair this with a scrumptious seafood dish and a beautiful tropical sunset.
