My thoughts about the Greek Wine Cellars 2010 Assyrtiko from the island of Santorini are much better and are ones I wouldn't mind repeating. Light, pale golden color with just a touch of green in the glass. Wonderful aromas of citrus and the tartest, chilled green grapes in the nose. Citrusy flavors with limestone notes that I finally decided made it a cross between a Chablis and a Muscadet.
Totally refreshing with some grilled shrimp and couscous laced with fresh oregano and Kalamata olives and a tiny bit of feta. Briny taste sensations when sipped with the shrimp, but a much earthier taste following a bite of couscous. Good wine.
