Nasiakos Greece Mantinia Dry White 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Pithy and tart on the nose with some green fruit, kiwi notes that are reminiscent of sauvignon blanc and a developing herbal edge to the candied lime fruit that makes it an even closer approximation. Really bright acids on entry makes this absolutely tingle with citrus fruits, though there seems to be a touch of sugar here helping to buffer acidity and  round out the lime and mandarin orange flavors. In any event it gives this electrically zesty wine some additional midpalate weight. The finish is all laser like acids, really long and keeping with the citrus theme. I don’t get any sweetness on the finish so this might just have great natural richness. Not super complex but wow this is bright and fun with just a little quartzy mineral on the finish and a hint of pith bitterness on the finale.  89pts
