Professional Wine Reviews for Pure Santorini 2015

Rated 95 by Decanter
100% Assyrtiko. Gently aromatic nose with lots of ripe nectarine, peach and apricot nuances – almost tropical. Precise, taut and mineral, almost salty, and very citrusy with a green apple character that lingers on the palate. An underlying power and depth shows lots of potential.
Rated 92 by Wine Advocate
The 2015 PURE is unoaked, very dry (about one gram of residual sugar versus 7.07 grams of total acidity) and comes in at 13.5% alcohol. Sourced from Pyrgos and Megalochori, the vines are at 150 meters and 250 years in age. Cleaner and brighter but every bit as powerful as the 2014, this has a livelier feel than the 2014 and better aromatics. The 2014 is probably more gripping and a little more concentrated, if not quite as pure. They are both impressive, different sides of the same coin. Some of the difference might well be the extra year of bottle age. They all have that high-acidity zing and zest leading to a big finish, for sure. Bottled without malolactic fermentation, there were 6,000 bottles produced.

Additional Information on Pure Santorini 2015

Winery Pure

Country: Greece

As one of the oldest wine producing countries in the world, Greece has millenia of experience and expertise when it comes to viticulture, and has developed a set of flavors and characteristics which are found nowhere else on earth. The ancient Greeks revered and deified wine, and were the first true innovators in the history of wine, adding everything from seawater to honey and spices in order to find exciting new taste combinations and aromas. Today, Greek wines are just as varied, although far more refined and sophisticated than their ancient counterparts. The practice of enhancing Greek wines with aromatic substances never left the country, though, as can be seen in the popular Retsina wines, which use pine resin to provide their unique taste and aroma combinations. There is far more to Greek wine than merely Retsina, however, and the vast variety on offer is a testament to the expertise of Greek wineries making the most of the wonderful climate, terrain and grape varietals they work with.
