Natalie's Score: 91/100

Toasty, rich and deep with refreshing notes of green apple and fresh bread. Long beery, yeasty finish.

Made using the hands-on traditional method, this sparkling wine won a Gold Medal and was named Best Sparkling Wine at the Wine Access 2011 Canadian Wine Awards. Slightly darker in colour than its contemporaries at the 2011 Canadian Wine Awards, the nose is toasty and autolytic, with lemon, apple, slightly smoky, honey and mineral notes. Fairly spicy on the palate, with near perfect balance. A pleasure to drink. Score: 91 Source: Wine Access

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.
