Reviews and Ratings

Julia Kelada rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

I must confess to being a bit apprehensive about sampling this wine.
I had this preconcieved notion that as good as they could try, Canadian wines just couldn't quite compete with the quintessential wineries of the world. Ooopsies! How wrong was I !

I was so impressed with this wine, that I almost blushed from the embarrassment of my prejudgement, and not from the flush of tannins!

This is a dry, fruity, medium to full bodied wine. The dryness really activates the palet at the right speed, it awakens the roof of your mouth with a punch and then disappears in time for the fruits, spicey plumbs and cherries, to surface from their oaky barrel before the finale of a suggestion of chocolate.

I must say this wine is extremley present and intreguing if drunk on its own, but with the accompaniment of an evening meal, the entire complexity of this wine blends beautifuly together in an incredible mouthful! Well done Niagara Peninsula!

Bottoms up!

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.
