2018 Santorini Familia Assyrtiko, Hatzidakis Winery, Santorini, Greece (6 x Bottle)

Greece Cyclades

The 2018 Santorini Familia has a sharp, precise bouquet of green apples and freshly cut pear, plus a faint whiff of sea spray. Maybe because it is a few months younger, that volcanic/basalt element is less pronounced. The beautifully balanced palate shows a fine line of acidity that feels a little stronger compared to the 2017 Cuvée 15 (though the crucial sense of tension and energy is intact) and displays excellent salinity on the finish. This is a superb wine that maintains the standard set by Haridimos Hatzidakis. I would give it a few months in bottle.
