Avantis Afoura • 2013

(94)

Winemaker Apostolos Moundrichas based in Evia Island takes his chance vinifying Assyrtiko in Santorini. The Afoura version which is partly matured in oak (there is also the unoaked Dolphins) shows a honeyed - golden colour and a complex bouquet of pears, tarte tatin with creamy biscuits notes. Full throttled and oaky on the palate with a vanilla layer on top of a dense core of peach fruit. Really long. (tasted blind).
