Geoffrey Lindsay reviewed this wine as follows:

I first tasted this wine at Natalie Maclean’s tasting with Beringer winemaker Laurie Hook and was extremely surprised, especially when I found out it was a white zin. It is pansy pink in colour and smells of lemons, melons, cucumber, strawberries and cream. Very soft, the smell reminds me of peach fuzz. The wine has an initial spritz on the tongue and is sweet on the palate with the taste and texture of strawberry shortcake with cream. Decent acidity, the 41 grams of residual sugar is moderately hidden on first taste. Watermelon and lychee plays out before the short to medium finish of lemon, strawberries and peaches. As I finished my glass I realized that this wine was much too sweet for my liking but I had enjoyed what I had. I suggest pairing this wine with a great start to a great night with friends.

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.
