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.
Monique Sosa reviewed this wine as follows:

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
Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

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.
Value: 3.5/5
Simon Chen rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

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 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.
Lynn van der Linde 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.

Natalie's Review

Santo Assyrtiko 2016, Santorini PDO, Greece: 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.
