Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 82/100 with the following review:

August evening après run and a visit to @zazazapizza in the Glebe. Not an extensive wine list but this typical expression of house Pinot Grigio hit the spot. Light, citrus, green apple, tangy acidity a good accompaniment to Lovers Leap pizza.
Cathy Walsh rated this wine as 71/100 with the following review:

This is simply a cheap, great tasting, crisp, pinot grigio perfect for a hot summer's day. Screw top makes it simple and quick to get at in case of emergency. Screw top also makes it suitable to store in the fridge if you are unable to finish the bottle.
The nose is broad with citrus and tropical fruits and some floral hints. the palate is vibrant and fresh with apple fruit notes.

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.
