Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Crisp and refreshing with a youthful pale greenish-yellow colour. The aromas of gooseberry and lime dominate the nose, while more muted vegetal aromas add complexity and depth. A long finish that is clean and persistent.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Vif et rafraîchissant d’une couleur jaune verdâtre jeune. Les arômes de groseilles et de lime dominent le nez, avec des arômes végétaux plus dissimulés qui ajoutent de la complexité et de la profondeur. Un fini long qui est net et persistant.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

Ms. MacLean is the disarming Everywoman. She loves wine, loves drinking ... ultimately, it's a winning formula.

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.
