OuSyra Serifiotiko 2022
Julia Harding, MW:
Pale lemon colour and an intense aroma of dusty, stony but clean-cut citrus. Lemon and grapefruit, as well as pear. Smells pithy. Tastes wonderfully smoky and bone dry even though there is a little touch of residual sugar – only just above the perception threshold. Sour citrus flavours have both clarity and complexity, remarkably so for an unoaked wine. Mouth-watering and slightly chewy. Real depth and interest.
Yiannis Karakasis MW:
From 40–80-year-old ungrafted vines. Whole-bunch pressed, with a few days’ cold soak and aged in inox. Tight if not downright austere white wine style, bone-dry with a steely acidity and a saline, almost seawater sensation on the finish. Like an Assyrtiko without the fruit, this makes an immediate impression with its arresting personality, a truly vertical wine.
