Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Light and savoury, the 2018 Boutari is made from Moschofilero, a vastly planted grape in Greece. The wine offers a soft fragrance of pink grapefruit, pear, citrus zest, potpourri and almond. Its light body and seductive acidity make it a perfect mid-afternoon apero. Palate: green apple, lemon, orange blossom, saline and almond. Enjoy.
Craig Haynes rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Crafted with Moschofilero grapes from Greeceā€™s Mantinia appellation, this light wine featured fresh scents reminiscent of spring blooms, green apple slices, lime zest and saline minerality that announced attractive citrusy and melon flavours. Revealed a splendid combination of light touch sweetness, brine like texture and cleansing acidity, too. Pour with steamed shellfish. Enjoy.

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Made from Moschofilero grapes grown in the Peloponnese region of southern Greece from Boutari Winery. Pale straw coloured with a greenish hue. Aromas are engaging, featuring lime citrus, white flowers and young cedar. Flavours are surprisingly fruity with mouthwatering pomelo fruit, yellow plum and crisp stony minerals. Acidity is mellow and the finish leaves behind nuances of grapefruit. Light and lively. A perfect pairing with traditional Greek dishes, spanakopita and souvlaki. Enjoy! - tasted October 2020
L.J. Palmer WSET 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A very pleasant wine with a pronounced aroma of white floral, peach, citrus and tangerine. It is dry, light bodied and very creamy in the mouth. The taste is floral, with more tangerine, citrus and peach coming through. It stood up well to double smoked salmon and would be equally at home with simply grilled chicken or a bowl of summer fruits. A pleasant sipper, especially in summer .
Jennifer Havers rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This is a very pretty wine. Aromas of white peach, pear and white flowers with a hint of saline and minerality. Light on the palate with vibrant acidity and a very mineral finish. Enjoy with ceviche or any fresh shellfish.

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.
