Sapid and citrusy.
The Pyritis Mega Cuvée 2020 from Artemis Karamolegos Estate has a deep golden colour.
On the nose it’s very sapid and flinty, but as one goes beyond the first sniff, there is a very citrusy character emerges with lemon peel and orange oil.
On the mouth Pyritis Mega Cuvée 2020 is as sapid and umami as expected. There is a certain smokey note too.
The finish is very long and elegant, an extremely lovely bottle.
Assyrtiko is a Greek white wine grape, probably the best known variety indigenous to this country. This grape is native to the island of Santorini. Here the soil is arid and volcanic which contributes to Assyrtiko distinctive mineral character.
While Assyrtiko is originally from Santorini, it is now grown all over Greece, from the northern area of Macedonia (Makedonia) to the Attica (Attika) region. Cuttings of Assyrtiko have also made it to the New World and Assyrtiko wine is now produced in Australia and the United States too!Link to here...
