Spyros Hatziyiannis Assyrtiko Santorini 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Preserved lemons, lemon verbena, flowers and a sweet, nutty base note greets the nose. A bit softer than most whites from Santorini, this does show of a nice white minerality in the mouth but it lacks some height in the mouth and intensity of flavors. A bit of lime, a bit of mineral, a bit of herb, attractive flavors are here but they don’t knit together particularly well and float away on the finish which is modest yet somehow leaves on with an aromatic freshness in the mouth that recalls the smells of the air after rain. 83pts

Took a chance and bought this on sale/close out. I know this wine is supposed to be a bit darker and bigger than a normal white wine and slightly oxidized but this one was rusty orange and had a distinct port nose and flavor, little to no acidity or fruit. Way passed its prime - lesson learned.
