Sarris "Lygia" 2020

100% Tsaoussi
A still orange wine from the Cephalonia region of Greece.

Funky. Orange peel, cider, wet stone.

Tasting Notes

The 2020 Lygia from Panos Sarris has a nice apricot-y colour.

On the nose it shows a cider-y like character, notes of komquat and orange peel follow. It unfolds with some herbaceousness (nettle maybe?), a hint of incense and wet stone.

The mouthfeel is interesting and ”layered”. It’s round, yet has a crunch and nice integrated freshness. The sensations complement each others and are balanced! Unfortunately Lygia is a bit thin in the mouth. Watery almost.

On the palate it shows notes of orange peel again then walnut and bitter almond.

The finish is on the short side

Score 88
