Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A blend of 65% Riesling and 35% Viognier, with expressive tropical and exotic fruit on the nose. Great texture and weight that's kept light and lively by the layers of zesty exotic fruit with lychee and pear on the spicy finish. Just off dry but not noticeably so, White Palette would be a great complement to moderately spicy Asian cuisine, roasted poultry, mild cheeses, and great as an aperitif in the summer sun. Tasted March 2017. Great value! 89 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Deep golden and bright. Declared 12.5% ABV. Medium bodied with balanced acidity and fruit. Approachable white blend with aromatics of juicy ripe pear, orange blossom and a hint of spice. Mouthwatering and medium bodied. Paired well with a #vegan sweet potato and curried lentil stew. Tasted March 2017. 87 points.
This light and floral 65% Riesling and 35% Viognier white wine blend from Niagara is crisp and dry with a little spritz. Served as a chilled aperitif on a hot summer day. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
