Wine Review: This almost clear colored Assyrtiko from Australia opens with a sea spray, bee’s wax and lime bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied with medium plus acidity. The mouthfeel is balanced and very bright. The flavor profile is a crushed stone and lime blend with notes of quince and chamomile tea. I also detected some hints of saline and lemon zest in the mix. The finish is dry and refreshing. I would serve this wine slightly chilled by the pool with scallops wrapped in bacon. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Clear, palest straw color in the glass. The wine opens with citrus rind, lemon blossom and a lick of wet slate on the nose. This wine has a sense of purpose in its line. Clean mineral, white floral and nice texture through the mid and back with the classic saline edge to finish. Screaming summer drinking, the finish is clean and refreshingly long.
