Natalie's Score: 90/100

Gooseberry, lime and green melon. Great refreshment, not too acidic. Lovely and medium-bodied with great aptitude to pair with seafood and salads. Terrific!

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: steamed mussels, asparagus quiche.

Sauvignon Blanc is a specialty of the cool, dry Leyda Valley and this 2011 from Santa Ema shows why. Fans of intense grassy Sauvignon Blanc will love this. The bold nose features capsicum, green peas and grassy notes with touches of tropical fruit. It’s dry and medium bodied with grassy herbal notes, citrus and tropical fruit backed by crisp lively acidity. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, April 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.
