Cork was perfect. However, nose is oxidative and not pleasant. Is this wine already over the hill or is it a bad bottle?

Golden yellow. Ripe pear and other yellow fruit. Honey, citrus. Slightly oxidative. Very rich on the palate. Pronounced salinity. The felt acidity is less than what is usual for assyrtiko. Very long finish. A unique wine with lots of character that one would not identify as assyrtiko in a blind tasting.

A wine from another period in history. Clear color, with golden hue. The nose is complex, with waxy and citrus notes that dominate. The palate is of an extraordinary balance and length. The aftertaste lasts for minutes, with lively, well integrated acidity. On its peak but probably no hurry.
