Τasting note by Yiannis Karakasis MW:
"Pale lemon with a tight nose reflecting a unique terroir. Mineral, salty and smoky around a core of stone fruit. Structured and powerful with impressive definition and many layers on the palate the Karamolegos 34 is an outstanding wine and effort that will keep for many years. Drink 2019 - 2029"
