Community Tasting Notes 3

  • k.lonis wrote: flawed

    April 23, 2015 - Clear color fully developed turning amber
    The nose is clean, med/med+ intensity, roasted almond and walnut ripe apricot, ripe quince, honey, ripe peach, hints of nutmeg and cinnamon.
    The wine is dry, more salty than a manzanilla (never tried such a Santorini), med body, high intensity, med alcohol, med+ acidity, roasted almond, walnut, ripe apricot, cinnamon stick, buttery, toasted bread, lacking balance due to saltiness and acetic acid, med finish.
    Very interesting wine, it was like eating roasted almonds soaked in sea water. A very strange oxidation indeed

    December 28, 2011 - Consistent with previous note. Holds amazingly well.

    November 13, 2011 - Dark yellow-gold. Evolved nose with candied grapefruit, chalky and flinty minerality, honey, undergrowth and hints of beeswax. Medium-full bodied with a fairly fresh fruit, minerality, tertiary flavors of mushrooms and truffles, balancing acidity and a medium aftertaste. Very interesting version of fully mature assyrtiko.
