3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

Boutari Santorini is the white wine that distinguisehd the Santorini vineyard worldwide. Today it constitues a must for every oenophile. The island of Santorini, located in Greece's Agegean Sea, is essentially a defunct volcanic caldera. The island's loam soil is characteristically dry -- this in combination with Santorini's microclimate, provides Boutari Santorini with its minerals and citrusy characteristics.

The 2011 SANTORINI is Assyrtiko, and a rather refined and carefully crafted one that slowly evolves and unwinds, demonstrating its persistence and the ability to improve dramatically in the glass. Boutari seems to have a style, emphasizing harmony and balance, if I can add insights from what I see in Naoussa as well. This is always a more forward Santorini, without the pure power some of the others often show. If this starts with subtlety, however, it gradually becomes more impressive this year as it lingers in the glass and unfolds, showing layers, crispness and persistence that I wasnít initially sure it had. This is a very fine performance if rather low key performance in this vintage, a harmonious, well balanced offering with surprisingly good aromatics, perhaps tinged by a hint of herbaceousness. For Assyrtiko, this has a lot of personality. I didnít start out impressed, but it was hard to give up the glass. Drink now-2016. ”
