Reviews and Ratings

Lori Kilmartin WSET3 - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Clear pale - almost watery in colour. Light body and mouth feel. Herbaceous and green apple aromas with high acidity. This is a fairly simple wine that will pair well with most dishes that are not heavy in body; think grilled halibut with a touch of lemon. Tasted November 29, 2016.
Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Bursting with fresh grapefruit in the glass and on the palate, with a short citrus finish. Would pair well with summer salads with strawberries and goat cheese.
Tasted Nov 2016.
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Quite aromatic (grapefruit, leom, tarragon, citrus soap) although simple on the palate. Light-bodied, simple and fresh. A patio sipper.
Sharon Lécuyer rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Light, refreshing pinot, dry, balanced acidity.

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.
