“Muehlforst is a lieu-dit [named vineyard] in Hunawihr, covering over 80 ha next to Ribeauvillé. The vineyards face south-east, and the terroir is dominated by marl, rich in lime. Muehlforst is one of the most reliable lieux-dits in Alsace, playing in the same league as Bildstoecklé, Bihl, Bollenberg, Rotenberg and Herrenweg.” 3Waw The Gewurztraminer from this fine producer contains classic lychee, grapefruit and spicy aromas and flavours. Intense but still quite dry, this flavourful wine needs intensely flavoured, but not necessarily spicy, Asian cuisine.

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.
