Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Tropical fruit and mango on the nose with lime and a hint of spice on the taste.
Few things in life are as pleasant as sitting on a shaded bank on a hot summer’s day, watching ducks glide gracefully across the still water of a pond. That peaceful feeling has been artfully captured here. Ripe fruit and fresh flower aromas paint a lovely picture of the outdoors. Good fruit replays on a precise and wonderfully floral palate. Crisp and refreshing in the mouth, with a long finish. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Jan. 2013

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.
