The 2021 Santorini Assyrtiko, the flagship 100% Assyrtiko, is unoaked and comes in at 14.6% alcohol. Ripe and delicious, this big and fruity Santorini is better today for its young fruit than its structure, but there is firmness underneath the initial blast of fruit. It rolls over the tongue and tastes great in its youth. Experience suggests this will be better in a couple of years and that it will age throughout the decade, maybe more. It was certainly better the next day, fleshing out and showing off more of its structure. This has one key question: Will it hold its balance as it ages? It's very big and it has to show that it can hold and become better, not just be a big and ripe fruit bomb. It has a pretty good chance to do so, but this blockbuster style will also drink well young. Still, cellar it for a couple of years for best results.
