Reviews and Ratings

Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Passion fruit, gooseberry, and fresh cut grass on the nose, with green papaya and pineapple gushing on the palate. There's an intense minerality to this wine, almost Sancerre-like. I'm 89 on this wine. (ottawawinejournal.com)

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.

Gary Vaynerchuck, Wine Library TV
