Reviews and Ratings

Joe Hache Prince Edward Count rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Well, this wine impressed. It TOTALLY matched with the spicy Jamaican dishes we had ... though not as sweet as the Riesling/Gewurztraminer we normally have with spicy foods.

It was pale gold in colour with tropical fruit aromas. We found it dry and medium bodied and was well balanced between the acid and fruit.

The LCBO serving suggestion talks about pairing with stir-fry or white meats but we found it was superb with our spicy dish .... we'll definitely have it again ... a solid 87/100 ... Chile keeps on impressing at incredible prices (yup, under $10!)

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.
