50% Assyrtiko & 50% Monemvasia
A delicious white blend from a famous producer on the Island of Santorini. This blend if the perfect balance of refreshing minerals and velvety roundness, as the acidity of Assyrtiko meets the texture of the other grape, Monemvasia. A delicious fish and aperitif wine, the AM is unique.
Mark Squires, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2018 Vintage)
"The 2018 Am Assyrtiko / Monemvasia is an equal blend, unoaked and coming in at 13% alcohol. This is a new brand to our pages, basically replacing the old Aa – the Monemvasia grape replaces Athiri. This shows more flavour and personality than the Aa, but perhaps it lacks some of its sunny purity and intensity. The best addition here is the texture. This feels almost like velvet, even while unoaked. Suave but fruity, it is bright, gentle and fun. It finishes with some dried cantaloupe and dried peach. It's a high-personality white that probably won't have the same universal acceptance as the Aa, but it tastes great. We'll see how it ages in time, but there is likely no rush. Drink 2019 – 2025."
