Reviews and Ratings

Juicy and delicious with loads of ripe white peach and pear aromas and flavours. The ultimate summer aperitif or companion to fresh seafood. Lovely, liquid lovely. MINE: This 100% Pinot Gris from Oregon is quite possibly the best summer aperitif wine yet and it can double as a great companion to seafood. The wine has a refreshing acidity with green plum, white pear, peach and honeydew flavours followed through with a lingering creamsicle finish. It just keeps opening up the longer you sip it. OTHER: Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: A great pinot gris, with typicity. Enjoy with pan seared filet of sole. Tasted Nov 2016 - @jonsteeves rated 89/100. OTHER: Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: Bright pale straw in colour, with aromas of young apricot, yellow apple, white flowers, and a little minerality and lemon. The taste is bright and clean and echoes the aromas nicely. Great acidity and a long tart apple finish. Not a boring Pinot Gris. Nice work from Oregon. OTHER: Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review: Offers floral notes on the nose with pear, apple and grapefruit flavors on the palate. The flavors blend nicely to finish with a hint of cream. OTHER: Cherie Cole rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review: Stone fruit and green apple on the nose and palate. Crisp and bright - would pair well with chicken or cream sauces. Tasted November 27, 2016. OTHER: Flat-out delicious, this brings compelling fruit flavors of melon, papaya and pineapple, coupled with juicy, mouth-cleansing acidity. The depth and complexity are phenomenal for an Oregon Pinot Gris produced in large quantities. Ranked #1 on the 2016 Wine Enthusiast Top 100 Best Buys. Score - 91 (Paul Gregutt, Wine Enthusiast, Oct. 1, 2016). - Community Wine Reviews

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.
