Sigalas 'Santorini' Assyrtiko
Jancis RobinsonExplodes with white pepper and lemon candy on the nose. Sweet pears and golden melon and mango and lime and crisp lime-green herbs. Too young to drink but impossible not to. My mouth is ringing.
Wine SpectatorA sleek, fresh white, displaying lively Asian pear and fig fruit flavors, with accents of pickled ginger and preserved lemon. Creamy on the minerally finish.
ParkerThe 2020 Santorini Assyrtiko, the flagship 100% Assyrtiko, is unoaked, dry (1.9 grams of residual sugar, six grams of total acidity) and comes in at 15.1% alcohol, a notable spike. That has some pros and cons. This is not the zestiest Assyrtiko, but it sure is ripe and rich. It sits in the mouth, coating the palate and seeming very weighty. Yet it doesn’t always seem expressive, at least not today. It also seems to hold the alcohol pretty well, and hopefully that will continue as this ages. So far, so good, in other words, but this will be interesting to watch as it evolves over the rest of the decade. They normally age well. Will this have the structure to do so? In terms of concentration, for that part of the deal it is just packed with fruit, even if the fruit seems a bit closed right now. Again, so far, so good, but other years might surpass it in terms of aging. This will plainly show better next year, and then we will have a better idea of where its ceiling is. As is often the case, it was also better the next day, but sometimes it seems too ripe for its own good.
