  1. Sigalas Assyrtiko Santorini 2018
    WA93
    $36.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points! The 2018 Santorini Assyrtiko, the flagship 100% Assyrtiko is unoaked and comes in at 14% alcohol. This is textured and elegant, while still solid in the mid-palate. If a couple of the 7 Villages offerings are powerhouses, this leans a little more to balance—but it still has very ripe fruit and its fair share of power. It's a bit young and less evolved than the 2017s, of course, but that will come. The rest combines balance and concentration. The fruit still has flavor, the finish is fine and it gets longer as this airs out and evolves. This isn't as striking as many of the 7 Villages wines, but it is still very fine. You may like it as much or better for its combination of fruit, grace and harmony. - Mark Squires, robertparker.com Learn More
  2. Oenops Apla White 2017
    $14.98
    Availability:In Stock
    The 2017 Apla' White is 60% Malagousia, with 30% Assyrtiko and 10% Roditis. It is dry, unoaked and comes in at 13% alcohol. What you get here is crispy, aromatic and refreshing—it's summer; it's Greek! Filled with dry flavors running from tangerine to pear, moderately tense on the finish and a pleasure just to smell for its citrus-and-flowers bouquet, this is another nice submission from this producer, new to our pages. It has reasonable depth for the grape, although it is not overly concentrated, and lingers beautifully. This is a great summer white. How well it ages will be interesting but academic. Most will find themselves digging into it immediately. You will be rewarded if you do. Young and fresh is what it is meant to be. - Mark Squires, Wine Advocate #236

  3. Tselepos Classic Mantinia Moschofilero 2016
    WA91
    $14.98
    Availability:In Stock
    91 Points! This year, the 2016 Moschofilero is very elegant and powerful. This regular Moscho from Tselepos is always a fine deal. So, too, this year. Pointed and precise, it grips the palate and doesn't let go. I've seen some years with a fruitier character, but this has about as much energy and power as any. Vibrant and vivacious, this is a classic warm-weather white. It has been proven to me that these can hold in the cellar–in a good year, they might well hold for a decade, maybe more–but there is little point to doing so. It might actually be a bit better this time next year, when it has had a chance to integrate its parts, but it should likely be drunk in the next two to four years after that for safety and to retain the freshness and energy that is its claim to fame. - Mark Squires, Wine Advocate
