Natalie's Score: 90/100

This wine is a blend of semillon (39%), muscat (23%), gewurztraminer (16%) and pinot gris. Such a pretty wine! Aromas of field flowers, peach and pear and honeysuckle a fresh spring day. Terrific aperitif.

Semillon Muscat food pairings: seafood, salads.

Vera Czerny rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Five grape varieties from different vineyards gave this wine an unbelievable complexity. Attractive yellow and green colors is the first think you will see in your glass. Layers are full of tropical fruit aromas. Clean and crisp, with touches of white peaches and mango this wine is elegant and delicate. Symphony of flavors is developing all the way until a long finish. Layers will be a great compliment to many spicy, sweet or sour dishes. I love it on its own. Enjoy it young.

It’s regionally designated as ‘Adelaide’. It’s part of a small but growing trend towards ‘field blends’ (which to the cynical means: what do we do with all these white grapes in the face of the sauvignon blanc onslaught?) ... a good thing, given that the wines usually taste unique, and good. It smells floral and peachy and of citrus, and while it tastes that way too the interesting thing is this wine’s texture. It feels slatey and very dry, with excellent reach through the finish. I opened it to taste, but ended up drinking it. It’s a beauty. Score: 90 Source: Campbell Mattinson, winefront.com.au

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.
