"From the eastern end of Crete, nearly 2,000 feet above the Mediterranean, this assyrtiko grows in loamy soils. It’s stony, waxy and broad in its lemon flavors, with grippy acidity and sea-spray minerality. It feels young and punchy, wanting rich seafood to match."
"When I sip this crisp, refreshing wine, its ripe flavors of peach, quince and wild herbs transport me to the Greek islands, basking in sunlight that drew Icarus higher on the cool Mediterranean breeze . . . oh wait, that’s my tasting note for a York Peppermint Pattie. ABV: 13.5 percent. - Dave McIntyre"

"This comes from a parcel of bush vines growing in the higher altitudes of eastern Crete. It’s a meaty white, powerful in its stony savor, with a peppery spice from alcohol. Broad and muscular, it could use a few more months (or perhaps years) in the cellar to mellow, or a decant and a roasted game fish to match."
