Gold Medal winner at the 2012 Concours Général Agricole in Paris. Klevener de Heiligenstein is a term used to denote wines made from the pink-skinned Savagnin Rose variety, and is specific to this area of Alsace. A cousin of Gewurztraminer, it is less aromatically intense and quite versatile with food. This wine offers up subtle notions of yellow plum, yellow cherry and lemon peel. In the mouth it’s juicy, smooth and focused, with tangy citrus-peel on the finish. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Aug. 2013

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.
