Natalie's Score: 90/100

A lovely, sunlit wine with attractive aromas of ripe peach and pear. The moderate sweetness is perfectly balanced with refreshing acidity so this wine will be divine with Asian and spicy dishes as well as those with some sweetness like glazed ham.

Pinot Gris food pairings: chicken and noodles in a light Thai peanut sauce, pan-seared scallops in garlic and butter.

Lovely, layered, dynamic Pinot Gris with fresh white peach, apricot, honeysuckle, lemon meringue and grapefruit zest aromas. Ripe and flavourful, with the measured sweetness on the palate nicely offset by bright acidity. Culminates in a cleansing, tangy finish that shows a pleasant touch of citrus-peel bitterness. Very smooth texture throughout. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Nov. 2012

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.
