2012 vintage 
This matured Assyrtiko is an outstanding example of oak treatment. Deep lemon color with golden highlights. The nose is vibrant with oaky elements reminiscent of vanilla, followed by citrus fruits on the background. Dry, with refreshing acidity and the classic Assyrtiko’s minerality. Oak flavors are well integrated with elegant citrus fruitiness on the palate. Persistent, long finish.
