Cuvee Monsignori 2017- Santorini

by Estate Argyros
$52.00

Cultivate from two centuries old vineyard on the Island of Santorini, this wine best shows the intrigue of the terroir.   Minerality, structure, salinity which we all know and love from a Santorini Assyrtiko are obvious.  The fruit, tart apple and apricot on the nose are inviting.  The surprise herbs like sage and thyme are so pleasing. 

I think I could easily pair this with grilled pork tenderloin or a Briam (roasted vegetable medley in a clay pot).  Obvious choices would be a sea bass, shell fish, like scallops and grilled shrimp kabob, with a beurre blanc sauce.  

Best served after a bit of decanting and chilled.
