Reviews and Ratings

This wine starts with intriguing aromas of lemon, chalk, sugar snap peas
along with ripe tropical mango, passion fruit and banana. The palate is dry,
racy and fresh with crisp minerality and chalky acidity and flavours of lemon,
nectarine, gooseberry, green melon and a long, savoury, dry finish.

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.
