Natalie's Score: 87/100

A pretty, floral off-dry Niagara white wine blend of Riesling and Gewurztraminer. Peach blossom and apricot. Pair with medium curries.

Riesling Gewürztraminer food pairings: honey glazed BBQ chicken, Asian fusion, fresh salads, and a variety of soft, mild cheeses.

Splendid Salad Wine

Reviews and Ratings

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Aromas of yellow apple, white flowers, peach, and minerality make this aromatic blend quite enticing. The taste is apple and peach, almost bordering on off-dry with medium acidity and a smooth mouth feel. I paired this with chicken thighs in a spicy Thai barbecue sauce and it was pretty much perfect.
Karen Eakins rated this wine as 86/100
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

Off-dry, friendly, fruity white. Peach, honeycrip apple, touch of lychee. A lovely warm summer backyard party wine.
Olivier de Maisonneuve rated this wine as 83/100 with the following review:

Smells more riesling but offers some of the flowery notes of the gewurztraminer.Definite sugary mouthfeel, makes me think it would be indeed fun with soft cheeses and fruit tarts.Hints of bitterness gives it a bit of lift.
Philippe Perreault, Sommelier rated this wine as 82/100 with the following review:

Clear golden color.

A nose of honey, mineral, rose flower and lime.

This white is delicate, light-bodied and the finish is short.

Pair it with Asian dishes or take it like aperitif.

Serve it at 15-17 degrees.

Ready to drink.

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.
