Monograph by Gaia Assyrtiko 2016

Peloponnese, GreeceMonograph is a focus on a subject or study of work, in this case, a winemaker’s work with the ancient, indigenous, grape variety, assyrtiko. The nose is a mix of sea salt, resin, minerals with a whiff of almonds. The Gaia estate, in Nemea, boasts on average 25-year-old vines. This one is dry, bright and crisp, simple yet expressive, and an honest white with a few watts of electricity to make it feel very alive. Super value and very food friendly.Tasted: 12 October 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 19.99 private wine stores Producer: GaiaDistributors: Red Dog
