2017 Argyros Estate "Atlantis" White Cyclades Greece

SKU #1379308 Jancis Robinson

 Relatively bland nose but the raciness of Assyrtiko can’t hide. Wonderful citrus tension. Definitely one to head for in an M&S store. 16.5/20 points. (JR)  (5/2018)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2017 Atlantis is the winery's screwcapped blend, mostly Assyrtiko, with 5% each of Athiri and Aidani, the "other" key white grapes on the island. It is unoaked and comes in at 13% alcohol. Over the years, this has become a pretty nice wine in its own right. Elegant, focused and crisp, this lively white is on the lighter side compared to its big brothers, but it lingers beautifully on the finish, demonstrating some grip and length. It should hold pretty well, too, but drink it when it is young and fresh for best results. It is a classic summer white. (MS)  (6/2018)

K&L Notes

From Santorini, labeled within the larger Cyclades appellation, this is a stainless steel fermented, fresh style of Greek wine made from a blend based on Assyrtiko, with dashes of Athiri and Aidani. Yiannis Argyros is a winelover who works very hard to obtain high quality grapes in order to make superior quality wines. And there are many professionals in the Greek wine market who think of Yiannis Argyros as the best Greek winemaker in dry white wines and dessert wines. His efforts to produce high quality wines have been acknowledged worldwide, as indicated by the award by Wine & Spirits Magazine as one of 100 best wineries in the world for 2005 and 2006. The Atlantis white is a crystal-clear yellow color, with a distinctive flavor of citrus overtones. The relatively high acidity of Assyrtiko gives it a crisp freshness, while the vineyard's extremely low yield lends body, structure and substance.

Greece

- We have the Greeks to thank for introducing wine into Italy and France. And while the legacy of ancient Greek culture lives on, little recognition is given to its modern-day contributions to the wine industry. From the Peloponnese in the south, to Macedonia and Epirus in the north, and islands like Crete, Samos and Santorini, fine wine is once again being made and most of it from indigenous grape varieties not grown in other countries. Styles range from hearty, rustic reds to crisp, neutral whites and heavenly dessert wines.
