More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Louise Wilson ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A bouquet of crushed rock, apples and lemons transition into flavours of white peach, green melon and lime. Medium bodied, with no obvious oak, and a dry finish. The mouthwatering backbone of acidity makes this a fantastic food wine. Pair with creamy chicken pot pie. At $12.95, a fantastic value. Enjoy through 2015. Tasted Oct 2014.
Kristin Perrin rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Apricot floral nose
Juicy tangerine palate
Medium to full bodied.

Very pretty, but NOT SHY AT ALL!
Jennifer Macdonald rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

A light, fragrant, and refreshing,wine, with pear and apple on the nose along with some lemon zest. Similar flavours on the palate. Dry, crisp, and nice acidity.
Valérie Dufour Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 79/100 with the following review:

Cantaloupe aromas.
A white made with ripe grapes. You can feel the alcohol.
A single note kind of wine for a very low price. Perhaps to serve with hors d'oeuvre when you have a large party.
Jane LeFresne reviewed this wine as follows:

Some red apple and lime notes on the nose along with floral aromas and a hint of peach.

Flavours of apple and honey with a lasting acidity.

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.
