Reviews and Ratings

Mike Roberts rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

If ever there was a "summer wine"! The wine is a pale green straw colour in the glass. The aromatics are lifted and pronounced offering loads of stone fruit such as fresh peaches, underripe pineapple and crisp green apple. This is a perfect balance between fresh and tropical on the palate. It enters softly, presenting wonderful tropical fruit notes framed with a bright, fresh and perfectly balanced acidity with just a hint of sweetness. Drier than off dry but not bone dry there is also an inkling of effervescence. Served super chilled and the acidity and freshness will be highlighted. At closer to room temperature the hint of residual sugar becomes more apparent. This is dangerously easy to drink but will also make for some incredible food pairing matches. Pair with a pan seared halibut or your favourite white fish and a fruit salsa, will do wonders with a Quinoa salad with a citrus vinaigrette and even better with ceviche or high grade sushi!

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.
