More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Macdonald rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Pale yellow colour, bright citrus and gooseberry on the nose. Very dry and crisp, with tart lemon/lime on the palate and nice acid to balance. Refreshing!
Shelley Harris rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Light and very fresh aroma with a grapefruit taste. I would pair this wine with a traditional Greek salad comprised of olives, red onions, cucumbers, seasonal tomatoes, and feta cheese topped with a dressing of dried oregano, garlic, red wine vinegar and olive oil.
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

Lemon, gooseberry, and a touch of cream. A little perfumed.
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Pale straw colour. Straightforward, simple aromas of pineapple and grapefruit lead to a light-bodied upbeat texture and confirming tropical flavours balanced with correct acidity. The finish is pleasant and clean.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Couleur de paille pâle. Arômes clairs et simples d’ananas et de pamplemousse qui mcnent r une texture légcre et vibrante qui confirme les saveurs tropicales équilibrées par la bonne acidité. Son fini est net et agréable.

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.
