Domaine Hatzidakis Aidani 2016 – 30,25$. Greek Soap.
I’m always curious to try new Greek appellations, so I was really happy to try this 100% Aidani vino , a variety that I only knew by name. At the first whiff, you know you have something very different from what you usually drink. Dear God was that herbaceous! More natural chamomile oil than wine, with something very grassy, (and not typical Sauvignon Blanc-grassy, something Springier and more pleasant) and even a bit soapy. On the palate, it is strangely a big hit of lemon that gets you first even though you couldn’t smell it all on the nose, with following notes of grass, chamomile and Savon de Marseilles. This will seriously unclog your pipes with its biting acidity, but it doesn’t feel overdone or too much… This is a really destabilizing wine – I really don’t know what to think about it! To try if you like the adventure and things that are out of your comfort zone.
