4 /5

Toasty, smoky and funky on the nose with mineral dusting and brooding intensity. The palate is salty dry with laser-beam precision and very funky wild ferment layering of complexity with oak wreathed into the mix with sensitivity. The finish is dry, with lasting salty and tangy flavours. Unique and outstanding wine.

4 /5

- This wine has slight citrus aromas well-combined with elegant oak notes, a rich mouth fell, crispy acidity, intense mineral flavours and a long finish.
- Enjoy this wine with seafood, fatty fish, lamb and poultry at 8 to 10 degrees centigrade. Keep the wine for 2-3 years under proper cellar conditions and it will undergo profound changes. Its mineral dimension will subside while the fruity and honey flavours will envelop its body. Pour Assyrtiko by Gaia-Wild Ferment in a wide decanter for around half an hour before enjoying it.
