£10 in your pocket, and looking to pop some white wine? You can’t do much better than this. It’s from Santorini: I’ve never been, but apparently the vines are grown in some of the most unusual and distinctive ways you can imagine (see this google image search for examples), in the island’s volcanic soils.
Hatzidakis Santorini 2012 Greece
13.5% alcohol. Mostly Assyrtiko, this has lovely aromatics of pear, white peach, citrus, wax and herbs. The palate is concentrated, fresh and citrussy with some spice as well as some peachy richness. Very lively with lovely weight and personality, and some subtle toasty notes in the background. Very fine. 92/100 (£9.95 The Wine Society)
