TASTING NOTES

Aged in oak for 6 months, this Assyrtiko definitely gained a new dimension. Light amber in color, it is much rounder and succulent on the palate than its steel-kept brethren, with enough acidity remaining to keep it fresh. Interesting, but not the easiest of drinks. Barrel aging quite possibly made it a bit too big and toasty.
