Hatzidakis Assyrtiko 2015 (12 bottle case)

World Wine – Some of Santorini's wines speak of the island's bright sun and the Meltemi wind in their brisk, insistent acidity and the way they whisk across the palate. In 2015, the wind never blew; and Haridimos Hatzidakis doesn't make breezy wines anyway. Focusing on old vines that he tends organically, he regularly turns out some of the island's most intense wines. This, his entry-level cuvee, is a giant, its concentration of dry extract palpable in the cashmere texture. The flavors are fruity, from meyer lemon to apple and pineapple, with notes of honeysuckle showing their ripeness. But then there's the acidity, pushing the wine forward with energy, keeping it dynamic. Firm and full of personality, it's a burly Santorini to cellar or pour with roast lamb.


Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – The 2015 Santorini is an Assyrtiko coming in at 13.5% alcohol. This old vines white (40 to 80 years) is simply gripping, filled with youthful, unevolved fruit and a certain salty nuance on the end. (I think that is a descriptor too often used–but it seems to fit here.) Elegant, yet concentrated enough for this level, this is impressive on many fronts for the regular Assyrtiko. As it airs and warms, it seems wonderfully fresh and completely delicious, yet always persistent. Admittedly, it is not exactly the most concentrated Santorini as it airs out, but its personality and flavor make up for that just now. This is a very impressive regular" Santorini and a terrific value.""he 2015 Santorini is an Assyrtiko coming"
