More Wine Reviews and Ratings

rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Unfortunately, thanks to retsina--the wine made with tree resin--Greece has a reputation for producing wine with all the charm of turpentine. But viniferous stereotypes never deter the Drink Wine and Giggle Gals, especially when the wine in question is from Santorini, one of the most beautiful islands in the world. As we sipped Sigalas' exquisite assyrtiko and reviewed the pronunciation of our best come-hither phrases in Greek, we could imagine grape vines straining to find water in Santorini's volcanic soil, like a Greek goddess desperate for the touch of her rogue lover. Sigalas assyrtiko is an acidic wine best suited to food that is off the beaten palate such as grilled octopus or marides, fried fishes they eat whole in Greece like little fishy French fries.

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.
