Karen Anderson rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

I picked up a bottle of this at Kensington Wine Market in Calgary for less than $40.00
We are lucky in Alberta with our wine prices.
The wine is crisp, clean, non-oaky, and still good enough to fool the French into thinking its one of their own.
I made a lobster, mascarpone, ricotta mixture with a hint of vanilla bean and chopped arugula and stuffed it into pasta shells and called it Soft Shelled Lobster. It was subtle and made a nice pairing for this very subtle wine.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
