Nina rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Wow! That was my first time tasting dry muscat! I'm in love! Really!
Bright straw color.
On the nose this wine is aromatic excellence! Lot's of exotic flowers, honey, honeydew, ripe fruit.
On the palate medium dry, nice acidity, very balanced, a little bit of minerality. Flavors of exotic fruits, spices.
Nice, warm finish.
It was wonderful with seafood!
Gabriel Israel rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

For $15, it doesn't get any better than this for Muscat. What I loved about this one is that it's mildly sweet with hints of mellon and litchi. So fresh and suitable for the summer.
This wine earned a Gold Medal at the 2011 Concours Général Agricole in Paris. Wow! Super intense aromatics of table grapes, orange blossoms, honeydew melon, nutmeg and other baking spices, plus a touch of Asian pear and lychee fruit. Medium dry, fruity and lush, this is a robust Muscat that is packed with sweet exotic fruit and spices, but with ample acidity providing balance. This is an amazing value.

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.
