Natalie's Score: 91/100

This lovely honeysuckle, apple blossom pleasure is never cloyingly sweet. It's also just slightly effervescent, enough spritz to make it refreshing and give a zip to your palate. Finishes with pretty floral notes and white peaches basking in Annapolis Valley sunshine. Perfect as an after-dinner drink on its own when you don't want anything heavy, or pair it with a fruit-based dessert like fresh peaches and cream.

Food pairings: fruit dishes, sushi, Asian salad.

Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

I am not being biased because I live in Nova Scotia, and I am so proud of what I consider to be, our vintage wine. I'm think this effervescent beauty from Benjamin Bridge and winemaker Jean-Benoit Deslauriers is vibrant and zippy with gorgeous flavors of mango, apple, passion-fruit and grapefruit. At only 7% alcohol, this is my perfect wine for enjoying a summer patio in the afternoon.
Produced by Peter Gamble, this is the first Nova Scotian wine to achieve national distribution which is quite a feat considering that both quality and quantity must come together. This lightly fizzy wine is made in the style of Italian moscato d'asti but has its own Nova Scotian signature. If you like off-dry pinot grigio or sparkling wine, you must try this with its honeyed essence. Finishes with lychee and apricot. - 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.
