Reviews and Ratings

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

What a great discovery! Tropical aromas of banana and pineapple, with citrus lime added on the medium-bodied, crisp palate. A terrific companion to mango mussels or Vietnamese cuisine. Wait til you see the price! Grab 2 or 3 bottles and run!

Sharon Lécuyer rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Straw, hay vanilla with a bit of tropical fruit on the nose. Tart, medium-bodied with flavours of granny smith apple dancing on your tongue. Great summer sipper. I'd pair with baked brie with a baguette and granny smith apples. Bargain price for the value. If you don't usually drink Greek wine, I suggest you give this one a try!

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Yummy and accessibly priced. Big mouthwatering acidity. Fresh and tart, medium bodied. This is a tropical fruit forward Sauvignon Blanc and Vilana blend from the island of Crete in Greece. Bottle does not declare its vintage. Paired well with pork tacos fixed with salsa verde and lime drizzled avocados. Tasted NV in March 2018. 88 points
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Pale lemon coloured with refreshing and delicate aromas of guava, tropical fruit and golden apples. Flavours reveal pear and nectarine alongside subtle herbs and saline. Refreshing and light. A suitable pairing for goats cheese, herbed chicken and mixed green salad.
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

A fresh crisp white with notes of peach ripe cantaloupe, banana, and floral notes on the nose.

Crisp and light on palate with notes of cantaloupe, clementine, lemon with just a touch of grassy notes seeping through.

Pair with a light shrimp salad, prosciutto, or with salty apps.

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier reviewed this wine as follows:

Simple and good value. A great white crowd pleasure. It’s frutiy and zesty with faint steely minerality notes. Like I said, light (very ligh) bodied with ripe peach, lemon, and melon flavours. The acidity is integrated still leaving a mouthwatering mouthfeel and the finsih is short. Enjoy with scallops au gratin. Tasted March 2018 by @sommsosa
