Natalie's Score: 89/100

Lemongrass and lime zest with terrific mouth-watering acidity. Clean and crisp: ideal for many dishes from seafood to vegetarian dishes. Some green apple and citrus on a lively finish. This wine is a touch off-dry making it extremely versatile with spicy and hot dishes. Good bones and breeding here.

Chenin Blanc food pairings: crab cakes, lobster, vegetarian dishes, Asian dishes, Brie, pear garnished with blue cheese, avocado and prawn verrine,.

This 100% Chenin Blanc unveils notes of crisp green apple, flowers and honey, and a pleasant, ample palate, with tinges of a delicate sweetness. You’ll barely notice this, though, since a good dose of acidity provides a nice balance. This wine would be a good accompaniment for fruity/salty dishes. But it will be an excellent passe-partout for many dishes with sweet and sour flavours. Wine of the Week. Source: Julie Perreault, journalmetro.com, Feb. 13, 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.
