|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Fragrant and floral, with aromas of apple blossom, lemon, pear, and mango. The taste is light, carrying the floral character of the aromas. The acidity is medium-low, and the finish is medium pear.

I reviewed the 2015 Thalia last year and find the 2016 very similiar. My first thoughts were "not your usual Sauvignon Blanc" both last year and this year. There is a bit of herbaceousness but not a lot of gooseberry. Light bodied with lemon/lime aromas and flavours and what I would call soft acidity. This would be a good pairing with Chicken Alfredo.

Atypical sauvignon blanc - very light bodied, hints of green vegetal character, touch of saliity. Nice and simple. Great with pan-seared scallops.
|Olivier de Maisonneuve rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
As my esteemed collegues noted, this is not a typical aromatic sauvignon blanc. Not much of the expected green notes on the nose. It is lightly fruity and has a soft acidity and some structure,thanks to the vilana. All in all, a nice patio wine,for reading a good book,under the parasol,with a gentle spring breeze blowing romantic whiffs from that bed of thrush by the fence.
|Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 80/100 with the following review:|
A Sauvignon blanc from Crete? I had to taste it. Typical nose of melon, but not super aromatic. A little watery. Not long in the mouth. Worth a try for the curiosity, but too lean even at that price.
