WTN: Estate Argyros atlantis '17...(short/boring)

by TomHill » Mon Jun 18, 2018 2:57 pm

Tried this Greek wine this weekend:
1. Estate Argyros atlantis IGP: Cyclades (13%; 90% Assyritiko/5% Athiri/5% Aidani; Lot 10318; www.Estate-Argyros.com) Episkopi/Santorini 2017: Light yellow color; rather floral/orange blossom/peachy slight stony/chalky pleasant nose; lightly tart off-dry (.5%-.7% r.s.?) bit tangy/metallic some orange blossom/mango/pineapple/floral slight stony/chalky pleasant/simple flavor; med.long orange blossom/floral/mango/almost muscatty off-dry lush slightly tart finish; a pleasant/simple off-dry wine but lacks the brisk stony/mineral character I like in Greek whites. $23.00 (KK)

Well, Bob ... as soon as it’s planted, I’ll try it, Bob. Will be world class, I’m sure.
