More Wine Reviews and Ratings

rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

The 2012 Eden Valley Viognier will be released via LCBO's Vintages on April 26, 2014. This is a wine everyone will want to enjoy over the spring and summer with bbq'd fish and chicken with lemon sauce to match the refreshing acidity in the wine. Compared to its younger crowd pleasing cousin, "The Y Series" viognier, this wine displays more layers of fruit both in the nose and on the palate. Loads of zesty fruit, with a long spicy finish, this is meant to be enjoyed with a fine summer time meal. 92 points.
Tasted November 2013.
rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Complex, rich and round. Great wine to pair with food. The ambassador of Yalumba, Jane Ferrari, told us at a tasting that this wine is a perfect partner for pork belly! A high quality white with depth. You can see the links between this wine and wines from Condrieu.

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.
