Domaine Sigalas Santorini Assyrtiko 2017

93 Wine Advocate
95 Wine & Spirits
(8/2018) "This assyrtiko may not be as powerful as Sigalas's single-vineyard bottlings, but the 2017 excels in the simple joy and purity it transmits. It's a liquid landscape of Santorini, from the clean, salty scent of a white-sand beach to the blinding brightness of the white limed buildings, telegraphed here in sunny, pithy lemon flavors. It feels minimalist and yet dynamic, thirst-quenching and vital."

Gai'a Estate "Thalassitis" Santorini 2017

95 Wine Advocate
(6/29/2018) "The 2017 Thalassitis is an unoaked Assyrtiko coming in at 13% alcohol. This is a bottling I usually prize for its freshness, elegance and lively demeanor. This year, one in which the wines could have a lot of concentration if you could avoid heat spikes, it has all of those things still, but it seems to lean to a deeper style instead of an exhilarating one. Overall, it finishes with a big hit of fruit, nicely supported by its acidity. On the first day tasted, it was a bit stolid. The next day, it reminded me of Thalassitis again-big acidity slicing and dicing that fruit, even in a year when it seems very dense and ripe. The score went up notably. The gripping and tense finish, by the way, seems endless. This does lack its usual finesse, so we'll see where it goes when it unfolds. This does have some things to prove in the cellar. In the new Santorini Assyrtiko trend, it is no longer acceptable to make wines that just drink well for five years, at least not if you want to be at the top of your game. It mostly seems pretty super, and it is worth leaning up right now. Drink Date 2018 - 2027."

Santo "Aspa" Santorini White Blend 2015

89 Wine Advocate
(8/31/2017) "The 2015 Aspa is an oaked blend: 75% Assyrtiko, with 15% Athiri and 10% Aidani, aged for three months in used French oak. It comes in at 13.7% alcohol. This is on the lighter side in terms of its mid-palate depth, but it is beautifully balanced and focused, a perfect food wine, among other things. It handles its oak easily-not that there was a lot of oak-showing a moderate change in texture and even less change in flavor. Harmonious and easy to drink on its own (or with food), this should do well over the next few years."

Domaine Sigalas "Aa" Santorini Assyrtiko/Athiri 2016

A tremendous value here for those who appreciate well-crafted, mineral-driven whites.
92 Wine & Spirits

"The 2016 Aa is the typical 75/25 blend of Assyrtiko and Athiri, unoaked and coming in at 13.5% alcohol. The Assyrtiko is pressed, while the Athiri is free run juice. Many would refer to this bottling as Sigalas' second label because it's less expensive. It's also a blend rather than a monovarietal. As such, it never has quite the concentration of its big brother, also reviewed this issue. So, it's sort of a second label, but it's hard to overlook how fine it is in its own right. Even in years past, it often exceeded expectations and aged better than I thought it would. Increasingly, as time goes on, this blend shows better and better. Plus, it always has one important advantage over the more brooding monovarietal: the blend is livelier and more aromatic, no doubt thanks to the Athiri. This year it is right on track. Showing fine concentration for a blend and this level, it gradually opens up-it was shut pretty tight when I first saw it-and delivers the flavor and sprightly feel it does so well. I suspect more than a few wineries would be happy to have this as their top wine. Like so much of what Sigalas does, this might actually be better next spring. It should hold well, perhaps better than anticipated, but take that in stages. Drink Date 2017 - 2024."
