Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Grilled nuts, dried fig, honey, date square, and a hint of dried citrus. Truly remarkable wine. How they sell for so little is beyond me. 94 points. (ottawawinejournal.com)
Alex & Priya - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Priya: This is your granny's sherry! Sweet and rich and won't take much to get you tipsy. Yummy but too sugary for me. 84 pts

Alex: Hah if your granny drinks this then she's a connoisseur, and you should sit down with her over a bottle and a game of cards! This is a cream sherry, predominantly Oloroso style with ~20% Pedro Ximenez blended in. Similar to a 20 year tawny port, with toffee, molasses and candied walnut blanketing the nose. Pungent, sweet and refined, and very easy drinking. Quite long in the finish, this serves up a wallop of concentration for the price. A fine sherry accessible to the masses. 90 pts

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.
