Thalassitis

by Gaia's Estate
$37.50
A benchmark wine from the Volcanic island of Santorini. This old vine  Assyrtiko wine is produced  in stainless steel tanks, and is bright, light and charming. Yet, it is a seriously structured wine, graceful, and complex. In typical fashion, it has assertive acidity and a mineral demeanor. The finish is long with tension, making this wine one of the favorite Santorini in 2016. It’s worth keeping it for a day or two and see the evolution as it airs out. Simply stunning. Fantastic with all things seafood. Octopus on the grill, full flavored fish (grouper, snapper, tuna, swordfish), mild white cheeses. ABV 13%
