Reviews and Ratings

Martha Kelly AIWS - CS rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

Medium lemon in colour, this full-bodied sweet wine displays pronounced flavours of Honey, peaches, marmalade, rye bread, orange, pineapple, candied lemon, and truffle oil. Long length on the palate to savour the complex, elegance.
Drink now, or cellar for decades.
Pair with fois gras, lemon meringue pie, or enjoy on its own.
Date tasted: April 2014.

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.
