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

Delicious select late harvest Vidal from the 2006 vintage. Tasted Jan 2017. Deep gold with orange honey hue. This is a gem. It is peaking and recommend enjoying this vintage soon. Intense depth, concentrated and viscous. On the palate I enjoyed rich honey, ripe peach, apricot jam. Balanced integrated alcohol 13% with intense aromatics and palate. Mouthwatering acidity. Long finish with persistence of zesty orange marmelade. At 11 years since harvest, this is an amazing wine. Enjoyed with crème brûlée. Also drinking well on its own. Quality and accessibly priced. Loved this wine. Bespoketastings.ca

Holy heavenly juice! Apricot preserve, candied orange, candied lemon, and honey galore! So lush and juicy with a long succulent finish. Enjoy with whipped coconut cream pie. Tasted Jan 2017 - @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca

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.
