T-Oinos Clos Stegasta Assyrtiko 2015

(93)

The current release of T-Oinos Assyrtiko shows for one more time the greatness of an extraordinary terroir when combined with top viticulture and minimal intervention in winemaking. Notoriously low yields (less than 18 hl/ha) and high vine densities (11.000 vines per hectare) are also indications of strong intentions to produce a great wine. Tight on the nose with a mineral and citrus fruit core along some herbal notes. The magic appears on the palate where the wine is very textural with impressive complexity for its age. Purity and minerality. (60% maturation in 2 tonnes wooden casks for 7 months).
