2018 Sigalas Assyrtiko-Monemvasia Cyclades Greece

SKU #1424271 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2018 Am Assyrtiko / Monemvasia is an equal blend, unoaked and coming in at 13% alcohol. This is a new brand to our pages, basically replacing the old Aa--the Monemvasia grape replaces Athiri. This shows more flavor and personality than the Aa, but perhaps it lacks some of its sunny purity and intensity. The best addition here is the texture. This feels almost like velvet, even while unoaked. Suave but fruity, it is bright, gentle and fun. It finishes with some dried cantaloupe and dried peach. It's a high-personality white that probably won't have the same universal acceptance as the Aa, but it tastes great. We'll see how it ages in time, but there is likely no rush. (MS)  (6/2019)

Greece

- We have the Greeks to thank for introducing wine into Italy and France. And while the legacy of ancient Greek culture lives on, little recognition is given to its modern-day contributions to the wine industry. From the Peloponnese in the south, to Macedonia and Epirus in the north, and islands like Crete, Samos and Santorini, fine wine is once again being made and most of it from indigenous grape varieties not grown in other countries. Styles range from hearty, rustic reds to crisp, neutral whites and heavenly dessert wines.
