In the bad run of Chablis vintages 2015-2016, we began to search for alternatives. And a friend of ours recommended we look into the Assyrtiko grape, as rendered on the sun-splashed island of Santorini. And boy, was our friend right! If you want a lemony, crystalline, detailed and saline white with both delicacy and intensity on the palate, look no further! And compared to the absurd prices now found on some Chablis, this gem won't break the budget, either.
