Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Crisp apple, pear, citrus zest, and honeydew notes. Lovely, fresh, and simple. 90 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)
Louise Wilson ISG Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Fresh and crisp with pear, peach and melon notes. Unoaked, with a medium body and a dry finish. Drink now. With Shrimp Creole. Fantastic label. Something new for Pinot Grigio lovers. Tasted Dec 2013.
Peachy and stony, with warmth, ripeness and lovely, savoury greengage fruit on the mid palate which has a pristine feel. Final taste is of roasted lemons and herbs, with a stony, almost salty mineral note. Highly Recommended. Drink: 2012-2014. Score: 93. Source: Decanter Magazine, Feb. 10, 2013

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

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.
