Volcan Wines Assyrtiko Santorini Koutsoyannopoulos 2009

Member Review by tabednar:

In the top 100 wines of 2009 in Wine Spectator comes from this small island in Greece. Tasted this after touring the wine museum that is located on the winery property. A bit acidic from the volcanic earth the the grapes are grown in but becomes sweeter and has a delicious finish. Worth going to the winery if you every find yourself in these parts...
