Gaia Thalassitis 2017

SKU 15865


A special feature of most Assyrtiko wines from Santorini is that despite their white color they behave like red wines! Try to age Thalassitis for 2 to 3 years at a temperature 12ο to 14οC and you will witness a change in it. Its mineral dimension will subside while the fruity and honey aromas will expand. Don't forget to pour Thalassitis into a wide decanter half an hour before serving. You will definitely be pleased by the result! Food Pairing: Enjoy it at 10C with seafood, fish, shellfish or even lamb stewed in lemon sauce, generally with flavors of moderate intensity, where salt, sour or oil predominate.

Wine EnthusiastLemon pulp and orange rind aromas start this robust but elegant Assyrtiko from Gaia. It offers zippy minerality and fresh fruit flavors in a clean and balanced package, with the characteristic smoke and saline edge from its Santorini terroir.

Wine SpectatorLight herb and saline notes accent the kumquat, apricot and smoke flavors of this tangy, light- to medium-bodied white. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
