Melissa Pulvermacher WSET rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Gooseberry, lychee and under ripe peach dominate the nose with subtle notes of honeysuckle and a stony minerality. The palate is reminiscent of sweet lemon with an smoky aftertaste where the minerality becomes very apparent. This wine has a great, medium-bodied weight to it and is overall very pleasant. This wine really tastes like a "place" and had the vintage not been so cool, the wine may have been a little more aromatically expressive. Creamy, West Coast oysters would be a flawless pairing. (Oct 2014)
Louise Wilson rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Crisp and refreshing with a sophisticated profile of green apple, lemon and mineral. Generous complexity on the palate and a long satisfying finish. Perfect with oysters on the half shell. Tasted March 2014.

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.
