I ADORE this wine. It’s mad. Imagine a Chablis that’s been to the gym and then gone hiking in the woods. A Bear Grylls of a wine. The steely, citrus tang of Assyrtiko has an added savoury complexity and depth. It’s still got that focus and clarity of the grape, but with more complexity. Perfect with grilled shellfish, baked whole fish or Pacific Rim dishes.
