Reviews and Ratings

TROCKEN / OTHER: The 2016 Rheingau Riesling Trocken Hallgarten offers a deep, clear and aromatic Riesling bouquet with just a hint of earthy/mineral notes. Round and elegant on the palate, this is a lush yet light to medium-bodied Riesling with a stimulatingly salty finish. Picked at 40 hectoliters per hectare, this undercover Jungfer grand cru stopped fermenting at 11.5% alcohol, but its ten grams of residual sugar are just perfectly round and juicy. The wine fermented with natural yeasts in stainless steel, with the malolactic included. Drink Date: 2018-2035. Score - 91 (Stephan Reinhardt, robertparker.com, Dec. 29, 2017). - 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.
