Natalie's Score: 92/100

Celebrate life! Wow this is liquid exuberance. Moscato-grape aromas with orange zest and honeysuckle swaying in the summer breeze. Low alcohol, and some sweetness make this a great aperitif or companion to any spicy dish or one with a bit of sweetness like glazed ham, sweet potatoes etc.

Food pairings: salmon, lobster, seafood chowder, charcuterie and Dragon's Breath blue cheese.

Amy rated this wine as 93/100
Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This wine can definitely make an appearance every year from now until eternity. Even the top Moscato d'Asti can't lay a finger on this wine. Incredible pink grapefruit and floral notes. Not overly complicated, but mouthwatering and screams for another glass more than any other wine I've had in the last few years. 91 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)
Lesley Quinn Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Everything from the colour to the sweetness level pleasantly surprised me about this wine. A blend of predominantly Muscat it's bubbles are so fine and delicate you barely even notice them. The sweetness level is extremely well balanced and leaves your mouth feeling refreshed. The colour is a light coral and you get aromas of key lime and roses. I saved this wine for my dessert, and was blown away by how great it was. I still think it is better on it's own or with a light dessert but you could have it with a mild salad too. It makes a fantastic wine to cap off a night at the theater, as I did

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.
