Reviews and Ratings

Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A light-bodied rose from Crete( native grapes of Kotsifali and Mandilaria) opens with strawberry aromas and has more red fruit, and cherry on the palate. A dry, mineral finish leads to easy sipping or pairing with light appetizers.
Craig Haynes WSET3 FWS SWS IWS rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This Kotsifali and Mandilaria blend from Crete showed attractive strawberry and red cherry notes on both the nose and its dry, crisp, light bodied palate. Crete is the birthplace for Kotsifali and Mandilaria. As illustrated in this rose, these grapes are compatible blending partners. Enjoy.

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Made from Kotsifali and Mandilaria grapes, this rose has a pretty medium pink colour. The nose is fresh with raspberry, red cherry, and sour cherry. Tart red fruit palate. However, the finish is highly bitter and astringent. A shame because everything else about the wine is enjoyable. Try with chicken or salmon dishes.
from the Crete wine region, Thalia 2019 has 'Protected Geographical Indication' meaning that wine grapes for this wine come from traditional geographic regions, prefectures or demarcated areas. Look for sour cherry, bright red berry and mineral flavours on this rosé crafted from the native Cretan varietals Kotsifali and Mandilaria. - Community Wine Reviews
