Mostly from the island’s signature grape assyrtiko, this is a fitting tribute to winemaker Haridmos Hatzidakis, who sadly passed away in August. Smoky and flinty with peach and lemon, it’s a compelling bottle.
…Hatzidakis’s steely, salty, zesty mineral-charged 2016 is a gem.
Jane MacQuitty, The Times, 9th September 2017
Scintillating (as ever) Assyrtiko from Haridimos Hatzidaki, the master of Santorini working with grapes from volcanic soils and producing a wine with an electric mineral current and luminous fresh lemon juice, zest and pithiness. Great with fish and seafood.
Fragrant and zesty, this outstanding Assyrtiko is gorgeous with a Greek Salad.
