Reviews and Ratings

Nicole Lewis rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

An interesting blend where the nose is both herbaceous, lemony and briny. These flavours are replayed on the palate with a medium body and crisp acidity to complement these notes. This food-friendly offering would pair well with mussels or crispy fried Atherina (smelts).

Cherie Cole rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Lots of tropical fruit on the nose, from mango, passion fruit and pineapple to zesty, pink grapefruit. Good acidity with a citrus finish. Tasted July 24, 2016.
Kimberly Inksater - Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

This Greek Riesling has Moscato like aromas of floral and honey rather than the mineral, stone fruit and citrus typical of this varietal. Still, on the palate this wine has the refreshing citrus or apple-like acidity one would expect in this varietal. Dry with a slight citrus pith and pepper on the finish. This pair well with spicy fish or chicken dishes.
Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

This wine displays aromas of pear, red apple, honey and some minerality. It is crisp and clean with lots of mouthwatering acidity and tart green apple and lemon flavours on the finish. Will pair well with a salad or soft cheeses.
Olivier de Maisonneuve rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

Very charming fruity nose,with spring flowers undertones.More subtle on the palate.Nice mouthfeel. Smooth sipper. Interesting assemblage!
Carola Price rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

Light with a little green apple on the palate. Some steel overtones, slightly metallic. Dry and pleasant. Pair with a green salad and with poached sole.
Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 83/100 with the following review:

A citrus infused Riesling that, despite crisp acidity, is a little lacklustre on the palate. Light, linear and easy drinking, with a simple, fruity finish.
A vibrant Greek white wine blend of Riesling and the native Lagorthi grape. Lots of acidity. - Community Wine Reviews
