Mediumgele kleur met wat groene schijn en veel schittering. Vette tranen kleven aan het glas. In de neus een eerste impressie van mineraliteit (vulkanische bodem). Na walsen veel citrusfruit vermengd met fijne kruiden. In de mond een brede aanzet die dadelijk gevolgd wordt door elegante zuren. Deze combinatie maakt de wijn verfijnd met een onderliggende mannelijke kracht. Een opeenvolging van aroma’s maken van deze wijn een zéér complex baasje en als je dan ook nog eens op zijn smaaklengte let, dan weet je dat men hier met een absolute topwijn te maken heeft.

    Suave, with creamy and rich flavors of kiwifruit, ripe citrus and melon. Honeyed notes linger on the minerally finish, which shows plenty of dried tarragon hints.

    The 2014 Assyrtiko (i.e., the Estate Santorini) is unoaked and comes in at 13.5% alcohol. It is a fine example of how it is easy to underrate these wines (Santorini in general, Sigalas in particular) and take certain things for granted. From day one to day two, it became a different wine, even though it seemed just fine on day one. It started with a lively demeanor and an elegant feel, but didn’t seem to have a lot of intensity or concentration. For young Sigalas--he being a guy who advises people to cellar his wines for at least two years after release--it opened remarkably easy. (That two years is usually too little in big vintages, by the way.) On opening, this was lovely, sunny and sprightly, but rather understated. Its best feature was its grip and length on the finish as it aired out and warmed. That was underscored on day two, when it also began to acquire some complexity. This isn’t the biggest wine here, but when all is said and done, it has almost as much power as any of them, particularly with some air and warmth, and more finesse than the most powerful ones. Assyrtikos in general, and this in particular, have a hidden layer.
