Holly Bruns rated this wine as 82/100 with the following review:

Candy apple red with sweet cherry and red berry aromas that give way to a tart cranberry flavour; crisp with a little lavendar on the finish.
Amyndeon is the only appellation producing rosé wines in Greece. This charmer, made exclusively from the Xinomavro grape, is full of fresh strawberries balanced with fine acidity. Xinomavro is grown as far south as the foot of Mount Olympus – this version is fit for the gods.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
