Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer KIR-YIANNI
Internationally recognized as one of the great indigenous white grapes of Greece, this vibrant ripe 2023 Assyrtiko is a must try for all wine lovers. Pale straw in colour, it has a very fresh, slightly spicy, somewhat floral, honeysuckle nose with citrusy, fresh melon-pear fruit along with some mineral notes. Dry, medium to medium-light bodied, harmonious, slightly spicy, very fresh, winter melon and ripe pear flavours with a lingering, crisp, refreshing, well balanced finish. This extremely well-priced crowd-pleaser is ready-to-drink and perfect with pasta, poultry and/or seafood (especially mussels and calamari). It spent 4 months on the lees and has 13.5% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar. Screwcap closure. CSPC 25707

It's crisp and poised, with notions of crunchy orchard fruit and subtle marine salt. Pair with fried calamari or zucchini blossoms. Price $ 18.00
