Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

The white wine of Nova Scotia, Tidal Bay is a fruity and lightly sweet white blend that pairs perfectly with seafood. This offering uses l'Acadie Blanc, New York Muscat, GM-318, Cayuga, and Osceola Muscat. The nose is like Fuzzy Peach candies mixed with mango, pineapple, and grapefruit. It smells fruity and sweet, but the palate is on the drier side with high acidity and balanced sweetness. Very nicely done, typical of Tidal Bay though a touch drier than many. Looking at a grilled shrimp food pairing. 88 points.

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.
