Wine & Spirits - This is a Santorini unlike any other. Cold macerated for 12 hours on the skins, then fermented without any added yeasts in an array of French and American oak barrels, as well as some made from acacia, it could stand in for a young Meursault. The initial oak scents are quickly subsumed in a tsunami of saline, chalky flavor, broad and savory, the texture as creamy as a meringue. It lasts on salt, lemon and chalk, ready to take on sliced leg of lamb with avgolemono.
