Robert Parker (RP) : 92 Points (2013)
The 2013 Thalassitis is the winery’s flagship, unoaked and sourced from ungrafted, old vines (70-80 years) Assyrtiko (without malolactic fermentation since, says the winery, it has no malic acid). It is listed at 13% alcohol this year. In its youth, this is quite aggressive, the acidity lacing into the palate and leaving a lemony nuance. There is a lot of tension on that finish, notable grip and some very nice fruit, too. I expect this to calm down a bit, and it should drink much better this summer, but it is actually quite exciting right now. This does seem to be a rather pointed Thalassistis, though, eschewing any hints of lushness for precision and tension. I loved the juicy finish a lot. Given the aggressive beginning, it was clear that this was a wine that needed some reexamination with more air. Two days later it was much more transparent, with the acidity still bracing, but not throwing off as much lemon. There was a touch of flint, which made me a bit wary, but it was currently overwhelmed by the acidity and fresh fruit. Hopefully, it will continue to move in the right direction and it did seem to improve with more air. For fun, I gave it a few extra hours of breathing on Day 2, and it seemed just great. By the time it hit 65F, after hours of aeration, it seemed quite full in the mouth and completely impressive. Mostly, it has a nuance that could only be called steely, a word used by the owner quite correctly. If this is a fairly stern Thalassitis, I suspect it will make a great summer refresher by the time summer rolls around, and for the reasonably foreseeable future. It is one of those invigorating wines that will wake you up on a warm, lazy day. Drink now-2022.

Very crisp and pure-tasting, with concentrated mineral and marzipan flavors. Vibrant elements of glazed citrus chime in on the finish. Assyrtiko.

Wine Enthusiast (WE) : 87 Points (2008)
Earthy, wild and bright, this Assyrtiko is all about spice, minerals and sea salt. A touch of crisp fruit rounds out the flavor. Dry and exotic, the wine speaks of the dramatic place in which it’s grown.

Blond clair avec des reflets verdâtres, ce vin a un nez caractéristique avec des arômes de fruits exotiques et des notes de poivron vert, de jasmin, d'orange, de melon et de citron. En bouche, il est riche, rond et offre un arrière-goût citronné. Wine Spectator Top 100 2014
