Gaia Thalassitis 2016 - Aug 2017 Decanter review
This wine is made from Santorini's indigenous variety Assyrtiko, which is renowned for combining full-flavoured maturity whilst retaining high acidity. The grapes are produced exclusively from vineyards in the Episkopi, Akrotiri and Pyrgos regions, where the vines are almost 80 years old and have a particularly low yield that never exceeds 25 hectolitres per hectare. The vines are cultivated in volcanic soils which are porous with a high mineral content.
Explosive minerality with fresh lemon zest on the nose, crisp acidity on the palate and underlying floral notes. Refreshing with a lingering finish and a slight hints of saltiness. An excellent partner to seafood, fish, shellfish or even lamb with lemon.
