Natalie's Score: 93/100

This lovely, organic Niagara white wine is made from the nervy Riesling grape. So aromatic and complex, yet so deft and light in alcohol. Aromas of lemongrass, lanolin, dried herbs and white peach. Deep core of minerality. Pair with grilled seafood, roast turkey or chicken.

Riesling food pairings: smoked whitefish and salmon cakes, smoked salmon pizza, spicy crab cakes.

Reviews and Ratings

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Floral nose leading with citrus blossom and white floral. Mild inklings of petrol before green apple, lemon, and peach appear. Dry with great acidity, so racy and crisp. Minerality through the palate and finish, healthy doses of slate and wet stone. A light, pleasant, and dry Riesling perfect for fresh shellfish, lemon chicken, or pork with applesauce.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This is a beautiful wine. Slightly floral, with aromas of flint, lemon curd, lime zest, and a soft herbaceous note. Soft on the palate with medium acidity, and flavours of pear, lemon-lime and some wet stone and a lingering finish. Enjoy with fish tacos.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
