The 2018 Santorini is unoaked and comes in with 13.8% alcohol, two grams of sugar and 6.8 grams of total acidity, virtually the same as last year's. This aims for freshness and purity. It is wonderfully transparent and lively, with moderate tension on the finish. The acidity gives the fruit a nice lift and makes the palate tingle just a bit. The fruit is clean and understated but still tasty. The mid-palate has reasonable concentration. Overall, this is more than respectable on all fronts, a classic Santorini that will be lovely this summer. It will still hold nicely for several years, maybe more.

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.
