Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Summery bright coral in the glass, crisp and dry on the tongue and totally refreshing on a summer day. Flavours of fresh red berries, punctuated by herbal licorice and fennel.
Tasted August, 2017
This dry rosé is made from Xinomavro wine grapes from Amyndeon in the Macedonia wine region. Kir-Yianni Akakies (2016) is refreshing with wild berries and mouth-watering acidity. About 90% of the must has grape skin contact and 10% produced from the saignée method or gently bleeding off the juice from red wine grapes. Pair Feta cheese, Greek salad and a whole lot of sunshine. - 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.
