Natalie's Score: 90/100

From Santorini P.D.O., Vassaltis 2019 barrel-aged Assyrtiko has a lovely richness and creamy texture on the palate. Pale yellow in the glass with aromas of candied citrus zest, fine herbs, iodine and flinty mineral notes, the wine is dry, full-bodied and vibrant with white florals, ripe tropical fruit, candied lemon peel with briny mineral notes throughout. Chill and enjoy with seafood dishes.

Assyrtiko food pairings: pan-fried panfish, grilled or steamed shellfish dishes, pan-fried Saganaki cheese.
