Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Floral aromas along with very nice pear, apple, and citrus and ginger. The taste is mellow, with the pear at ginger at the forefront. There's a nice long melon and pear finish. This wine was a near perfect match for barbecue chicken with a ginger sauce and roast vegetables.
Bold lychee, grapefruit, rose petal, orange blossom and lemon custard. Dry and characterful, especially from intense lychee and rose petals flavours. Well-made fruity Gewürz with just-right structure to give it real interest. Source: Vintages Wine Catalogue.

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.
