WINE ADVOCATE 91 POINTS - "The 2019 Thalassitis is an unoaked Assyrtiko coming in at 13% alcohol, 1.6 grams of residual sugar and 6.4 of total acidity. It is sourced from ungrafted vines 70 to 80 years old. Crisp and a little lean but focused, powerful and very persistent on the finish, this is lovely for its freshness and precision. It's not exactly a super-ripe and fat Santorini—and we're seeing an increasing number of them these days—but this style suits me just fine if it is well executed. This leans more to stonewashed and tense than fruitiness. Tightly wound, it lingers beautifully on the finish. It is not as brilliant in terms of the flavor profile, though, and there's a hint of lanolin. The fruit is not terribly expressive. Still, this fills the mouth and grabs the palate. It has at least some character, and I appreciate its precision. It should age well, perhaps better than indicated, or you can use it as a wake-me-up this coming summer." WINE & SPIRITS 90 POINTS "Vinified in stainless steel, this is lean, firm and mineral, with enough fruit not to be mean, and enough acidity to be palate-whetting." August 2021
