Gaia Monograph Assyrtiko 2019

Gaia Monograph Assyrtiko 2019

The 2019 Assyrtiko Monograph is unoaked, dry and comes in at 12.5% alcohol. This is not, to be clear, from the winery's Santorini holdings. Even so, it is the priciest of the Monographs this issue. It still does great. Seeming solid in the mid-palate, it shows fine structure as well. The fruit is lifted on the fresh finish and it lingers nicely, textured and tasty. For all that it leans to structure rather than fruitiness—like its Moschofilero sibling this issue—it does have fruit that demonstrates some expressiveness. That won't be its strong suit, though. Overall, this is an Assyrtiko built to be refreshing in warm weather. It should hold well for a few years, maybe more, but it will certainly be fine this summer if you choose to wait. For the moment, I'm leaning up on this. It will be interesting to see if it develops and holds gracefully. - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
