The tension on the finish is remarkable. The acidity is often thrilling, but never shrill. The sugar, fruit and acidity are actually in excellent balance. This vivacious Vinsanto just grips the palate, lifting the fruit flavor and making it linger. It is also pretty delicious on that juicy finish, laced with caramel, apricots and baked peach.
85% Assyrtiko – 15% Aidani. A fine dessert wine from the sun dried grapes Assyrtiko and Aidani of Santorini. The 3-year maturation in oak barrels offers a mature and velvety character, tricking the mouth between honey and lemon, raisins and sweet spices.

It is understated, graceful, elegant and airy, with its acidity easily cutting through its mid-palate and the sugar. Showing far more grip and tension, however, than the four-year bottling also reviewed this issue, it adds a layer of depth and more power at the end in comparison, plus some additional complexity. It gets better and better with air, too, and showed better on Day 3 than on opening. The ability to combine power and elegance makes this a great experience. Drink now-2030.
