             2022 ASSYRTIKO

This single vineyard Assyrtiko that we have imported comes from the Nemea Valley and is fruitier and more moderate in acidity better aligned to our Aussie palate.

To me it’s a wonderful rich mouthful of Chardonnay, Riesling, and Sauvignon Blanc all combined to provide a luscious mouthful of honey and lemon sherbet on its way to the finish.

Enjoy with grilled/fried fish or squid (calamari) grilled octopus or lobster roasted chicken or lamb with lemon sauce.
