Available for:
Category White Wine
Origin Greece, Macedonia, Amyndaio
Brand Kir-Yianni
Alcohol/vol 13%
On the nose the wine displays aromas of white fruits and flowers. On the palate, the citrus acidity balances with the alcohol and the round mouthfeel of the wine and finishes with a lingering aftertaste. Pair with roasted or poached fish, fried cod, oven-roasted stuffed squid, pasta in sauce or white cheeses.

The 2022 Assyrtiko is unoaked and comes in at 13% alcohol. This screw-capped Assyrtiko doesn't go for big, profound or complex, but it isn't $70 a bottle either. It's a super value in its lively style. It tastes great and it's crisp, dancing across the palate assertively. There's tension to go with the good, mineral-driven fruit. It's a youthful beauty that should hold well under screw cap. What it really needs at this point is a little more concentration. That perhaps makes it a better fresh white than an Assyrtiko per se, but those are thoughts for the future. However, what this can acquire with a couple of years of bottle aging (hopefully) is more expressiveness as the wine develops a bit. This a bit different than the 2021, but it has its own virtues. Overall, if I wasn't clear enough, I loved the fresh summer-wine feel here. It is a perfect warm-weather white.
