Wine Score: Zacharias Assyrtiko 2017 Peloponnese

Even though Greek wine is referenced throughout history, it’s easy to overlook the impressive quality of what is coming out of Greece. This high scoring wine from 2018’s Ultimate Wine Competition, Zacharias Assyrtiko 2017, comes from the Peloponnese region and is made from the white wine grape assyrtiko. Rated 90 Points by the wine judges, it was one of the top scoring Greek wines.

"Lime zest and herb patch characterize the aromas of this pale wine. Bold flavors of crushed sea shell, limestone, and citrus oil fill the mouth. A distinct chalkiness leaves the palate feeling clean, and desiring fresh, salty shellfish."
