Jon Steeves rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

A wonderful Vidal icewine. Dominant Raw honey, ripe juicy lychee, sweet apricot, fragrant applesauce on the palate and nose. Deep creamy gold, sweet and rich with vibrant acidity. This wine is irresistibly delicious and pairs well with classic New York cheesecake. Tasted Jan 2016.
Monique Sosa rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Wow! What a delicious dessert wine. This Vidal Icewine speaks volumes of what the Niagara Escarpment and Sue-Ann Staff can do. The aromas are so vibrant! Layers upon layers of wild flower honey, apricot, orange marmalade, lemon liqueur and a hint of minerality linger on the palate. With high luscious acidity, this wine comes together so well. The lemony-orange puckering finish on this wine will linger on and on and on - an excellent pair with hard aged cheeses. I can't get enough of this wine. This is Sue-Ann's first and only Icewine vintage, so here is to hoping she makes more of this juice.

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.
