The 2019 Assyrtiko Monograph is unoaked, dry and comes in at 12.5% alcohol. This is not, to be clear, from the winery’s Santorini holdings. Even so, it is the priciest of the Monographs this issue. It still does great. Seeming solid in the mid-palate, it shows fine structure as well. The fruit is lifted on the fresh finish and it lingers nicely, textured and tasty. For all that it leans to structure rather than fruitiness-like its Moschofilero sibling this issue-it does have fruit that demonstrates some expressiveness. That won’t be its strong suit, though. Overall, this is an Assyrtiko built to be refreshing in warm weather. It should hold well for a few years, maybe more, but it will certainly be fine this summer if you choose to wait. For the moment, I’m leaning up on this. It will be interesting to see if it develops and holds gracefully.

Country: Greece

It is almost impossible to understate the importance of local and regionally produced wines in Greek culture. Across the country, from the cities of the mainland to the villages, mountainous regions and islands, wine is produced using traditional methods and native grape varietals, and is drank in households and taverns, either accompanying the much loved local cuisine or alone as a refreshment under the blazing Mediterranean sunshine. For wine lovers around the world, Greece is known for producing several wines with something unique and interesting to offer, a refreshing change from the norm filled with surprises and complex, occasionally challenging or unusual flavors and aromas. Thanks to the vast range in terrain across the archipelago, Greek wine is as varied as it is delicious, meaning there is plenty to explore and enjoy from this fascinating and ancient country.
