Reviews and Ratings

Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Great value in this Greek wine - a blend of 3 traditional grapes. Bright ruby red with a cherry nose, some serious tannins and bitter chocolate on the finish. Fab with charcuterie or rare beef dishes.
Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

The Tsantali family has a long history of winemaking in Greece.This is a blend of three indigenous grapes from the slopes of Mt. Olympus in northern Greece; Xinomavro, Krassato and Stavroto. Light fresh cherry aromas and flavour. Medium body with tannins that are drying and medium acidity and finish. This wine spent 6 months in french oak barrels and underwent malolactic fermentation. Tasted March 20, 2017
Olivier de Maisonneuve rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Fun nose of cherry blossom,(the chocolate not the flower). The palate is simple but tasty and is a great i-had-a rough-day-now-but-now-it's-pet-the-cat-time wine. Patés and black olives platter companion

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.
