Asirtiko / Athiri, is 75% Assyrtiko (notwithstanding the inconsistent spelling on Sigalas’ label), with 25% Athiri. It is fragrant and lovely this year, and a terrific value. Given the blend, this will never have the pure depth and power of the top end of the lineup, but its aromatics and elegance are utterly charming and it has a lot to offer in its own, more personable style. Tinged with some lemon-lime early on, it eventually became more harmonious while remaining perky, showing viscosity and personality. It becomes quite mouth-coating as it warms. Retasted the next day, it was, if anything, even better, crisp but harmonious, a little more complex and still persistent. This is a lovely effort in this vintage, one of the finest values in the report.. "-Robert Parker.
