Natalie's Score: 92/100

Vintages Wine Panel: The ever-food-friendly Riesling pairs beautifully with a whole host of fare. My note: Just smelling this wine makes my mouth water! Gorgeous, drop-to-your-knees aromas of peach, flint, petrol (that’s good), lime zest and happiness. Racy!

Riesling food pairings: grilled chicken with herbs, barbecued prawns with lemon zest and basil stuffing, roasted stuffed red peppers.

Apple, toast aromas. Lime, butter, peach/apricot, stonefruit flavours. Tasted Nov/2010.
Lesley Quinn Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This review is for the 2011 vintage, and what a steely vintage it is. Delicious notes of a slightly under ripe peach and just the right amount of petrol. This wine is very easy to drink and pair with, I had it with some East Coast Oysters, and it was yummy. Aww the beauty of a good Riesling!

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

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.
