Natalie's Score: 89/100

Lovely peach fleshy goodness balanced with mouth-watering acidity. Medium-bodied and very aromatic. Perfect for spicy and hot dishes.

Riesling Off Dry food pairings: Asian fare - Thai, Vietnamese, curry based dishes or kebabs with mango chutney.

Joe Hache Opimian Society rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Riesling is one of my favorite grapes and this one does not disappoint ... in fact it sets the bar for me! It is very aromatic and I get flowers, honey, citrus on the nose. It is "off dry" and has a very good balance of sweetness and acidity. Just a "bit" drier would push my score up! The staff at the local pub here in the county automatically grab me a bottle when I drop by! I have it with everything on the menu!
A fan favourite at Huff Estates: an opulent Riesling which
exudes aromas of mandarine and peach amid delicate floral
blossom notes. An undercarriage of refreshing acidity
transcends recurring flavours of stone fruit and melon
resonating on a generously textured finish. A prime
example of delicate balance of sweetness and acidity. Most definitely, a palate pleaser.

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.
