27. Gavalas Santorini (2012)

« Prev Next » 27 of 29
Tight on the nose with a fine blend of mineral and subtle sage like aromas. Juicy on entry, this hits the palate with admirably purity and liveliness showing off very clear and tense flavors of dusty dry earth, yellow fruits, and a faint hint of yellow tomato that picks up where the sage on the nose leaves off. I really the clarity this shows on the palate and tension in the mouth. Definitely towards the lighter bodied end of the spectrum, this is another wine with salty minerality that extends the finish, but accompanied by such a wonderfully refreshing purity of fruit. I can drink a bottle of this on the patio even if I didn’t have any octopus. 91pts

  • 1384007BHWine The 2011 screams Sauvignon Blanc and it is hard to distinguish the other varietals that are in the bottle. I have had the 2009, 2010 and 2011 Conundrums. I like the 2009 best.
