90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2015 Xinomavro Hedgehog Vineyard was aged for 12 months in an equal mixture of new and second use French oak and comes in at 12.8% alcohol. If you want to know why this region and grape have a reputation for acidity, this issue certainly shows you. This is one good example. Alpha's Axia is another and the Kir-Yianni Kali Riza yet a third. Silky yet fruity, without a lot of concentration but with enlivening lift to the fruit and plenty of power, this has all those old-school Xinomavro nuances of earth and amber to go with the big hits of acidity. These types of Xinomavro make me think "Nebbiolo" every time. In fact, this often seems to have more rusticity than Alpha's upper-level (and typically more refined) Vielles Vignes bottling. When these old-school types come down the road, you are best off letting them rest a bit and coming back in a few years. The acidity and tannins will preserve them for a long time, perhaps longer than expected, so there is no rush. This is a fine value that does a lot of great things that wines in this price category often do notÑbut you will need some patience, and it does have to be your style." - Mark Squires (29th Jun 2018)

"The 2017 Malagouzia Turtles Vineyard is unoaked and comes in at 13.2% alcohol. As with most of the better versions of this grape, it is fun just to smell. It could, perhaps, use a little more intensity, but the purity of fruit is impressive, and the concentration is reasonable for the grape. Particularly enjoyable are the dry, controlled bursts of pear and peach mingling together on the finish. I wouldn't say this is their best-ever version, but it is still a hard-to-resist, refreshing white at a nice price. As always, drink it young and fresh for best results. It will be great this summer." - Mark Squires (29th Jun 2018)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"The 2016 Paranga white is mostly Roditis, with 20% Malagouzia added in. It is unoaked and comes in at just 11.5% alcohol. Sourced from vines at 700 meters in Amyndeon and using this grape blend, this is always going to be a lighter-styled, fresh white. If that's your style, this does nicely as a classic summer refresher. Relying more on aromatics, acidity and a tasty finish than fat and rich fruit, this drinks easily but always seems very appealing. It is enlivening and hard to resist, with a dry and clean finish. Drink it young for best results, but it can hold well for a couple of years." - Mark Squires (31st Aug 2017)

92 Points - James Suckling (2014 Vintage):
"Subtle aromas of dried peaches and lemons follow through to a full body and lots of fruit, but there's a tangy, electric, vibrant finish of edgy acidity. Excellent. One of the best Falanghinas out there. Drink now." - (October 29th, 2015)

Tasting Notes/Food Pairing:
Deep ruby color with bluish hues. Intense and complex nose where the typical aromas of each variety are nicely combined to show their best expression: black plums coming from Malbec,fresh cherries and Black Currant from Cabernet Sauvignon, ripe black fruits from the Tannat, slightly mixed with spicy notes from Petit Verdot. Juicy, it expands and intensifies in the mouth, gaining density and complexity as it is savoured. Finishes with smooth, lush tannins and good length. Great with medium spiced twice cooked pork. BBQ chicken, grilled sausage, smoked cheeses.

Wine Enthusiast Magazine (2016 Vintage):
"Aromas of wild berry, violet and a hint of oak-driven spice carry over to the bright palate along with tart red cherry and star anise. An orange-zest note backs up the finish while fresh acidity and polished tannins provide balance. Drink through 2020." - Kerin O’Keefe (10/1/2018)
