The 2017 Santorini is mostly Assyrtiko with 10% Aidani and 5% Athiri, all unoaked and coming in at 14% alcohol. Dry, it has less than two grams of residual sugar and nearly seven of total acidity. The first bottling I've seen from this label, this is a qualified success, especially for a blended Santorini—the blends tend to be lighter and airier. Not so here, perhaps due to the 2017 vintage conditions. This is dense, big and ripe, perhaps to a fault, with a powerful finish. It lingers beautifully and grips the palate, becoming more interesting as it airs and warms. It is terrific on the first day tasted but clumsier, particularly on opening, the next day. Yet it kept improving, acquiring a little finesse along the way as it warmed. (You really don't want to drink this too cold...) To be sure, finesse will never be this wine's calling card.
