Santo Wines Santorini Nykteri 2013

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Candied and sweetly floral on the nose with a hint of butteriness and a touch f honeycomb along with gentle suggestions of sweet fruit and a hint of a spearmint top note. A touch of gas on the palate lends this a prickle on the tongue. Easy drinking, round and full, this remains well grounded with smoky mineral notes, a hint of saltiness, and fruit flavors that are rather restrained. Gorgeously drinkable, this is a party wine par excellence. The finish is brisk if modest with a fine blend of saltiness and citrus and sweet orchard fruit notes. On the simple side for Assyrtiko but at the same time this should be wildly popular with anyone who enjoys white wine. There’s a hint of tannin here and austerity that really adds energy on the modest finish. 88pts
