Reviews and Ratings

It’s floatily aromatic. As soon as you unscrew the top and start to pour you can smell the gentle florals. There’s no oak here, just muscat (85%) and gewürztraminer (the rest) grown in the mountains of north-east Spain – not usually my favourite grapes but although you might think this smells of honeysuckle and has a gentle spice to it, it’s got edges as clean as a shiny window pane and a crisp pertness that makes it refreshing too.

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.
