T-Oinos (on the island of Tinos) is one of Greece's most ambitious winemaking projects. No expense is spared here and everything is about making exceptional wine from this unique terroir. The Assyrtiko 'Rare' is from a small parcel within the Clos Stegasta vineyard. It is fermented with wild yeasts in a mix of oak casks and amphorae, then aged on its lees for several months. It is one of the finest Assyrtikos you can buy, rivalling the best that Santorini has to offer. Full-bodied and powerful, it has an intense citrus flavour and could be aged for many years.

Pretty oaky on the nose but smart oak. Firm, slightly tannic texture and the fruit eats up the oak that was evident on the nose. Cedary character comes more from the oak, perhaps. Deep, even chewy but rounded and precise even within the oak jacket. More finesse than the 2017 and even more youthful and embryonic. Mouth-watering and salty on the finish with a more spicy mineral character than stony.
