Pandrosos 2018: Wine Advocate 2019: 92/100: “The 2018 Pandrosos is οne of the most powerful wines here, this grips the palate with its acidity. The fruit is lifted and slammed back down onto the tongue. For all of that, it isn't just an acid freak. The mid-palate is closer to average in depth, but it certainly fleshes out as it warms up. It shows the body to hold up to foods. The wine is also focused and the fruit is expressive. The grape blend adds the predictable aromatic hit that makes this refreshing even if you just smell it—there are touches of grass and eucalyptus”.
Jancis Robinson 2019: Foivos Pandrosos 2018: 16,5/20: “Pandrosos has a tantalising wild, sour aroma of dried grasses and green fruits. Incredibly dry and high in acidity thus with a mouth-watering finish (the level of residual sugar is well judged). You have to be an acid freak to love this wine but it has terrific purity and precision and would be a great food wine, if a little challenging on its own”.
