Reviews and Ratings

Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 82/100 with the following review:

Pale ruby in colour. Intriguing smoky, stewed dark fruit and prune aromas on the nose. Light in body, with fresh, yet somewhat disjointed, acidity. A vegetal note subdues the fruit on the palate and lingers on the finish.
Nicole Lewis rated this wine as 81/100 with the following review:

Of medium colour intensity, this Greek gem offers up gamey-brambly red berry notes. It is a light-to-medium-bodied, dry and quite acidic. It has a short finish.

Would pair well with roasted or dry tomato-based dishes.

Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 80/100 with the following review:

Lighter ruby in colour with notes of red cherry, cedar, raspberry and tart cherry on the palate. Light bodied with mild tannins and a biting acidity.
Carola Price reviewed this wine as follows:

Light red and bright. Red cherry, strawberry and some fresh coffee. Flavours much like the nose. Interesting and light bodied. Perfect for summer drinking.
Pair with fruit and cheese platter and lots of salads, grilled veggies.
Drink now to 2 years.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
