rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

I am a full bodied red wine lover, so when it comes to whites it seems to be a whole different ball game. So I don't like sweet white wines, but I can handle light fruity whites as well as the intensly charismatic whites. This wine falls into the category of awhile with true personality. A white that leaves you feeling satisfied!

The colour is a wondrous golden yellow spy colour!

On the nose there are caramel apples and buttery notes.

On the palate there are cooked pears with crisp citrus. There is a buttery coating on the palate with slight nutmeg spice and deliciously lengthy tannins.

A perfect white for those decadent moments, even if it's just you and the wine!

I give this a 94!

Bottoms up!

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.
