Natalie's Score: 90/100
Love this wine! There's a core of minerality and smoky savouriness that I rarely find combined in a white wine. Racy acidity for shellfish and seafood. Aromas of lime zest.
Spectacular Spicy Wine

|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A fantastic oyster/raw bar wine. It's salty and lemony supported by unripe white peach and green grass notes. 90 Points.
|Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Heady aromas of stone fruit and fresh cut herbs, that transform to a tangy citrus mouth. Wonderful with a variety of foods from opening appetizers, to fresh calabrese salad, and white fish dishes.
Tasted March 2018.

Don't get to try greece wines often but I love this white. It's pleasant with nice fruits on the initial palate but it switches to nice lingering dryness.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Dry, crisp but slightly smooth. Citrus and tropical notes, hints of peach and pear. Balanced with medium acidity. medium + finish. Pair with white fish, pasta and cream sauce, or chicken in lemon dijon marinade.

An interesting, crowd pleasing white. Dry, creamy mouthfeel, well balanced, medium acidity and fruit. Stone fruit and salinity, lemon tart. Tasted 2016 vintage in Sept 2017. Paired well with Grilled lemon-basted chicken kebabs. 88 points.

A great wine for cream-based dishes.…
Presentation: A classy, sophisticated label, with a nice textured foil top, and an intriguing green cork
Appearance: Pale-Medium gold
Nose: Medium nose with notes of honey, green and dried herbs, cantaloupe
Taste: Dry, full body, high acidity, low tannins, dry minerals, graphite, and lemon rind
Finish: long mineral finish
Overall impression: This wine would pair very well with cream-based dishes (such as pasta dishes with béchamel sauce) or anything with Tzatziki.

Delicious! The creamy mouthfeel balanced with juicy acidity and long pink grapefruit and saline notes offers a welcomed complexity. Enjoy this light-bodied Greek white with feta, sun-dried tomatoes, and olive of course! Tasted Mar 2018 by @sommsosa
