50% Assyrtiko, 50% Sémillon
This was one of two Assyrtico blends which turned judging heads this year (look out for the other, with fragrant Malagouzia, among our platinum winners), underscoring the versatility and sheer quality of this outstanding Hellenic variety.  The aim here is clearly to make a subtle, creamy, full-textured white wine for fine dining, and the challenge has been well met in this wine which we came to nickname, as we tasted and re-tasted it, the 'Greek Graves'.  Look out for subtle scents of soft citrus, beaten cream and courgette, and a generously textured and contoured flavour which combines citrus and vegetal notes in that same alluring style.  Brilliantly vinified, with no vulgarity or overstatement, and the general retained freshness suggesting that both varieties are happy in their relatively cool Pangeon location.  Drink 2019-2021
