Here’s what Wine.com had to say about the Boutari Santorini 2008, which was featured this month at the Wine & Spirits magazine top 100 wineries of the year tasting:
- Made with 100% Assyrtiko, Boutari’s Santorini is a steal at around $20. I really enjoyed the unique aroma. The rep hit the nail on the head and pinned down the aroma as that of oxidized fruit. Think of the aroma of an apple or pear that’s been sliced and left out in the air. I didn’t find it particularly acidic or crisp, but then again, I think it was served a bit warm. At a cooler temperature I think the acidity would have jumped out a bit more.
Thank you Wine.com and thank you Wine & Spirits magazine for naming Boutari “Greek winery of the year” for 12 years in a row!
