Natalie's Score: 88/100

So very pretty with aromas that would waft up from a field of daisies fluttering in the wind. This is the stuff of slow swinging hammocks in July and sun-bleached daydreams. Vibrant, refreshing and then, because you've finished it surprisingly quickly, you'll want a nap.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

This wine was inspired by the idea that there can be great synergy between the aromatics and energy of our aromatic whites, coupled with the richness and complexity of our barrel-fermented wines. Each component was vinified separately in both stainless steel and barrel and then blended to showcase their aromatic intensity, balance and richness.
Pinot Gris (45%), Chardonnay (35%), Viognier (9%), Gewurztraminer (7%), and Sauvignon Blanc (4%).
Each varietal that comprised the final blend was vinified separately, and then selected in the desired proportion using a series of blind tastings. A small portion of the Pinot Gris, Chardonnay, Viognier, and Gewurztraminer were barrel-fermented in a combination of neutral and newer French oak barrels. A small lot of Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier that was used from our Estate Vineyard were harvested together late in the season and co-fermented prior to blending. The final blend was kept with its lees right up until bottling, with scheduled battonage.

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.
