Reviews and Ratings

Lise Charest Gagne rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A lovely BC wine grown in soil loaded with sea rocks. The wine has a sweet aroma of yellow apple, melon, citrus and some faint banana. Flavors of light melon and citrus with a nice long finish of citrus and minerals. The wet gravel taste is juicy but not over the top fruity! The wines are 100% crafted by the family where the vines were grown from their own cuttings, grapes harvested and wines created. It would be great with some lime / herb marinated grilled seafood! Tasted May 2017.
Gwen Barton rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Medium-bodied white wine from British Columbia. Supple mouthfeel. Aromas of peach, apricot and slate. Nice acidity. Minerality and flint notes on taste and through the finish. Pair with smoked cheese melted on a baguette.
Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Light straw in colour, this wine has a moderate intensity aroma of apricot, yellow apples, grapefruit, and white flowers, with and added touch of yeasty lees. This dry wine has a soft mouthfeel, medium weight and balanced acidity. In addition to the same fruits noted in the aroma, we can sense a minerality in the mouth and notes of white pepper and vanilla. Score 88. (S.Segard, reviewed Mar. 02, 2017)
From the Okanagan Valley in British Columbia, Stoneboat Vineyards Pinot Gris (2015) is fragrant with apricot and tropical fruit mimicked on the palate matched by a crisp acidity and finishing with a flintiness. A Stoneboat is a flat sledge for carrying stones which was employed to clear the winery's home vineyard of all the river rocks found there; hence, named "Stoneboat". The stones are important to the vineyards as they retain the heat during the day and keep plants warm at night. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
