Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro - Andrea's Wine Cellar rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Pale lemon colour, pronounced fruity and mineral aromas of tart pear, yellow plum and lime citrus with tremendous amounts of minerals, clay and salt. Also an herbal element, fresh sage leaves. Sweet pea floral. Flavourful and fruity with bright grapefruit and lime notes. Much of the bouquet is echoed in the palate with some crisp yellow apple and briny sea. Medium plus acidity and finish with a medium minus body. Outstanding. Pair with fresh oysters, clams and scallops. 92 points - December 2017
Cantina Gallura Piras (2015) is made with 100% Vermentino wine grapes from the Sardinia wine region. Lovely dried herbs, ripe pear and savoury spice on this grassy and nutty-flavoured wine. Quite interesting and tasty. Pair with grilled seafood.- 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.
