2018 Sigalas Assyrtiko Santorini Greece

SKU #1399922 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2018 Santorini Assyrtiko, the flagship 100% Assyrtiko is unoaked and comes in at 14% alcohol. This is textured and elegant, while still solid in the mid-palate. If a couple of the 7 Villages offerings are powerhouses, this leans a little more to balance-but it still has very ripe fruit and its fair share of power. It's a bit young and less evolved than the 2017s, of course, but that will come. The rest combines balance and concentration. The fruit still has flavor, the finish is fine and it gets longer as this airs out and evolves. This isn't as striking as many of the 7 Villages wines, but it is still very fine. You may like it as much or better for its combination of fruit, grace and harmony. (MS)  (6/2018)

K&L Notes

Founded in 1991 and organically grown on the Greek island of Santorini, Domaine Sigalas is best known for its white wines made from the Assyrtiko grape variety, particularly the crisp, citrusy, stainless steel-fermented version. Winery notes: "Straw blonde colour, with light shades of green and a subtle nose of citrus fruit. Excellent structure with a depth of flavor and an acidity which brings the flavors to the fore and adds freshness, with a lasting after-taste. Has the characteristic mineral taste typical of the variety and the soil of Santorini at its very best."

Greece

- We have the Greeks to thank for introducing wine into Italy and France. And while the legacy of ancient Greek culture lives on, little recognition is given to its modern-day contributions to the wine industry. From the Peloponnese in the south, to Macedonia and Epirus in the north, and islands like Crete, Samos and Santorini, fine wine is once again being made and most of it from indigenous grape varieties not grown in other countries. Styles range from hearty, rustic reds to crisp, neutral whites and heavenly dessert wines.
