Reviews and Ratings

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Grapefruit, pineapple, and lime aromas, with a touch of biscuit. The taste is lime and pineapple, and has a nice creaminess.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A great Prosecco offering dry mouthfeel, exceptional value, Bartlett pear on the palate with a hint of hazelnut and citrus. Tasted Nov 2016 - rated 88/100
Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 83/100 with the following review:

Subtle citrus and floral notes on the nose. Light bodied, frothy and fresh on the palate. Quite a simple style, but offers good value.
Kimberly Inksater - Sommelier rated this wine as 83/100 with the following review:

Aromas of lime, grapefruit and a hint of rose and orange blossom. The effervescence is fleeting but the citrus flavours and acidity remain in the mouth, making this an ideal palate cleanser for a herbed goat cheese or spicy appetizer. Good value for a simple sparkling wine.
Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 78/100 with the following review:

Presentation: Very distinctive, almost like a grappa bottle. You won’t miss it on the shelf.
Appearance: Pale lemon colour
Nose: Medium intensity aromas of pear, pink grapefruit, lychee, with a bit of biscuit
Taste: Dry, with miniature, very sharp, effervescent bubbles, lemons rind and wet stone
Finish: Medium finish with some bitterness in the back end
Overall impression: A dry Prosecco, that should work well for a Mimosa. Good with salty foods like prosciutto.
Value: 3.5/5

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.
