Halkia Assyrtiko 2020 Corinthia (Greece) Assyrtiko "Amber"

From a one woman winery in Corinthia: Gleaming an electric lemon hue due to 5 days skin contact, this Assyrtiko still exhibits classic notes of intense lemons, salt and minerality. The palate offers flavors of citrus, and juicy green pear backed with bracing acidity, salinity and minerality. Medium bodied, unfiltered and  eminently poundable, this Assyrtiko is almost a doppelganger for Santorini's pricier versions. Great with seafood and white meats, grilled vegetables and salads.
