Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

From Paarl, South Africa, an Organic white. Pretty nose of tropical fruit and citrus, followed by a palate that gives vanilla, pineapple, guava, citrus zest and toasty oak. Dry, medium-bodied and very pleasant.
Tasted Jan. 2017
From South Africa, Avondale's Jonty's Ducks (2014) is a white blend of mostly Chenin Blanc with smaller amounts of Roussanne, Viognier, Semillon and Muscat de Frontignan grapes. Jonty's Ducks guard the winery's old vines, patrolling over the vineyards keeping snails under control. The winery is certified organic and biodynamic - 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.
