Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Lovely apple with touch of lemon on nose. Bright, fruity flavours of peach, apple, lemon and slight minerality on a silky palate, with elegant finish.
Tasted August 2016
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This wine's appearance is super clear and almost water white but the legs are thick and slow moving, so you know it's going to be sweet and sticky! The nose shows strong notes of honey, apple and apricot puree. The palate is a welcomed surprise with concentrated notes of wild flower honey, spearmint, cooked apricot, and beeswax. This wine is medium dry (borderline sweet) with a deliciously balanced acidity. This is a lovely pair with pavlova or fruit custard. Tasted August 2016. @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
This is a floral, citrus zest, stonefruit and sweet, ripe fruit Riesling underpinned with a minerality -- a very expressive Riesling from the Mosel region in Germany. Good acidity and well-balanced throughout. - 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.
