Full-bodied; other - ASSYRTIKO, ‘Wild Ferment’, Gaia. Santorini, Greece

2017 ASSYRTIKO, ‘Wild Ferment’, Gaia. Santorini, Greece

Bin: 214
Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Area: Santorini is a volcanic island in the Aegean sea off mainland Greece. Poor, rocky soils ensure low yields and potentially high quality
Grape Variety: 80 year old, un-grafted Assyrtiko vines, fermented with natural yeasts; matured half in oak (some oak, some acacia wood)
Producer: Modern estate run by Leon Karatsalos and Yiannis Paraskevopoulos, making fine wines in both Nemea and Santorini
Food Match: So much flavour - so good with food; even copes with 'difficult' ingredients like artichoke, asparagus and fennel. Just make sure the food is well seasoned enough to cope with the wine....
Old Bridge Rating: The richest wine in our 'Crisp, Dry' section. The wild ferment has given a genuinely 'wild' style. Subtle but intriguing aromatics; lively freshness with intensity that grows and grows as the wine gets more air in the glass. A complex wine for the thinking drinker
Press Reviews: "Toasty, smoky and funky on the nose with mineral dusting and brooding intensity. The palate is salty dry with lazer-beam precision and wild ferment layering of complexity with oak wreathed into the mix with sensitivity. The finish is dry, with lasting salty and tangy flavours. Unique and outstanding wine.’’ - www.thewine gang.com
