Natalie's Score: 93/100

This organic and biodynamic wine is superb! The vines were grown on a limestone base and the wine shows an incredible mineral depth. Joyous aromas of lime and white peach leap from the glass. Mouth-watering and endlessly delicious. Food matches: salads, shrimp and oysters, creamy cheeses, and marinated vegetables. Also perfect for seafood dishes including lobster, shrimp, crab, and white fish. Pasta tossed with olive oil, fresh herbs, and grilled seafoods.

Riesling food pairings: seafood platter, pan fried white fish, seafood salad, raw oysters, creamy cheeses.

Outstanding Organic Wine

The 2011 Quarry Road Vineyard Riesling continues in the tradition of the vineyard, yielding steely and mineral reisling of outstanding character. This riesling speaks to the nose with intense citrus fruit, including juicy ripe grapefruit and hints of lime zest. Limestone minerality is detectable. On the palate it is dry, with lucious, ripe citrus and mouth watering acidity. Great length featuring lingering fruit, citrus zest, and minerality.

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.
