Domaine Sigalas "Aa" Santorini Assyrtiko/Athiri 2016

Email
Varietal: Assyrtiko
Sub-Region: Santorini
Region: Aegean Islands
Color: White
Country/State: Greece
A tremendous value here for those who appreciate well-crafted, mineral-driven whites.
92 Wine & Spirits (8/2017) "Athiri's floral, fruity scents play off of assyrtiko's salty mineral character in an addictive way, adding a host of herb and citrus notes that gentle the wine's stony base. It's firm and lasting, with an oceanic scent that brings to mind a pairing with grilled octopus."
92 Wine Advocate "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."

Our store is on Old Skokie Road which is the frontage road on the west side of Rt. 41. We are 400 yards south of Deerfield Rd/Central Avenue. If you know where Williams Ski & Patio or Rick's Auto Body are located, we're on the same street; just about a few hundred yards to the south. If you are not familiar with the area, best to use GPS or some online directions because our store is a bit tricky to find!

We're on Elston Avenue, just off of the Kennedy Expressway (I-90/94). Take the North Avenue exit and head east. Elston Avenue is the first stoplight that you'll come to. Turn left on Elston and drive for just over a quarter mile. We'll be on the left side of the road just after the rail overpass. Parking is on-street, right in front of the store!
