Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Crisp, clean and refreshing. Aromas of lemon pith and zest, along with some beeswax and white floral hints. Light to medium bodied, with a creamy, luxurious texture, and medium acidity. Citrus notes light but well balanced, enjoy with halibut or cod.

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.
