Heather Wall CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Icewine is always a treat. Super sweet with strawberry, cherry syrup, alcohol, cake spice. It packs a punch on the palate. i like to pair icewine with opposites. Sweet/salty or sweet/bitter. That being said Stilton cheese or 60%+ dark chocolate. It would be difficult to find dessert equally sweet. But that would be half the fun!
Vintner J-L Groux loves to blend all of the wines he makes, including this dessert wine. Lots of strawberry jam notes here. Try this icewine on top of vanilla ice cream. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
