Reviews and Ratings

Dry, crisp, mouth-watering and refreshing with notes of wild field berries. So very delightful and bone-dry. Pair with planked salmon. MINE: The 2015 vintage of the Akakies Rosé is made from Xinomavro grapes and is complex, flavourful and dry. About 90% of the must has grape skin contact and 10% produced from the saignée method or gently bleeding off the juice from fermented red wine grapes. This is a terrific Greek Rosé. The vines are planted in the sandy soils of the mountainous Amindeo mountain range which overlooks the Amyndeon wine region. OTHER: Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: Made from Xinomavro grapes, showing aromas of fresh melon, citrus and herbaceous notes, reflected on palate. Extra-dry, crisp and refreshing. A great summer wine with salads and grilled white fish, or savoury appetizers such as olives. Tasted July 2016. OTHER: This wine is made with Xinomavro grapes grown at an altitude of 700 m in the Amyndeon appellation, the only Greek PDO specifically for rosé. It's zesty and tangy with red cherry, watermelon and raspberry aromas and flavours plus a touch of crunchy red pepper on the lip-smacking finish. Pair with green salads or grilled pork kebabs. (Vintages panel, June 2017). - Community Wine Reviews

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.
