Natalie's Score: 87/100

So pretty and floral, with lovely aromas of apple and peach blossom. Light-bodied with just a touch of sweetness. Perfect with biscotti, angel food cake and fruit-based desserts.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A beautifully aromatic dessert wine with aromas of sweet peach, honey, canned pear, a touch of citrus and a hint of rose. The palate shows mainly ripe peaches.
Heavenly with a peach shortcake or poured over ice cream.
Chris Coughlin WSET level 3 grad rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

After dinner finisher with aromas of honey, citrus, and orange blossom. On the palate: apricot, peach and citrus flavours. Have with dessert...or without.
Terry Jeans rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Very pleasant late-harvest wine with ripe peaches, lime and floral notes. For this price, it is a steal and would be very drinkable if chilled, on a warm summer evening paired with some strong cheeses.
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This wine is a great not-too-sweet dessert wine. The Vidal grape has enough acidity to keep the balance. Lots of lychee on this wine, with some pineapple, peach, apple and a touch of cream. Great for a peach cobbler.
Doug Mcmillan rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This wine has minerality, white flowers, and a bit of gooseberry and lime ... but just a little. This would be quite nice with a fruit plate or sipping on the patio.
Kristin Perrin rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

White peaches / pear / floral / limey / a touch of honey.

Peach parfait.

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.
