Natalie's Score: 93/100

Love it! White flowers, white peach, lime and petrol (this is good) on the nose. Vibrant and juicy on the palate. Packs a punch flavour-wise even though it's medium-bodied. Ultra food-friendly from seafood to roast chicken. Just a touch of sweetness but it's hard to pick up with the great acidity.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

With the weather warming up, I find myself reaching for white wine more and more. This Reisling had beautiful aromas of peach, melon and vanilla. Nice crisp acidity and a taste of apricot on the finish. I enjoyed this with Indian food and loved the pairing.
Mark Cochrane Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Light yellow Riesling without the usual heavy mineralty of some Rieslings but lots of fruit balanced with some acidity. Pairs nicely with lobster a la vodka
Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Piercing aromas and flavours of candied lemon, lime, white peach and red grapefruit lead to a beautiful fresh, mineral-tinged finish. Slightly off-dry. Perfect example of Washington Riesling, bridging the gap between Australia and Germany. I'm 90 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.
