Lesley Quinn Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This review is for the 2011 vintage, and what a steely vintage it is. Delicious notes of a slightly under ripe peach and just the right amount of petrol. This wine is very easy to drink and pair with, I had it with some East Coast Oysters, and it was yummy. Aww the beauty of a good Riesling!
Jason Solanki rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Apple, toast aromas. Lime, butter, peach/apricot, stonefruit flavours. Tasted Nov/2010.




Natalie's Review

d'Arenberg The Dry Dam Riesling 2008, Mclaren Vale, South Australia, Australia: Vintages Wine Panel: The ever-food-friendly Riesling pairs beautifully with a whole host of fare. My note: Just smelling this wine makes my mouth water! Gorgeous, drop-to-your-knees aromas of peach, flint, petrol (that’s good), lime zest and happiness.

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.
