Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A benchmark Canadian Riesling featuring aromatics of elegant minerality, stone fruit, Asian pear, beeswax, alfalfa honey. Well balanced, mouthwatering, integrated alcohol and fruit. Medium plus bodied and ready to enjoy 2016-2022. Pairs exceptionally well with a Thai chicken stir fry, South East Asian curry, calamari, traditional English fish and chips and drinks well on its own. Tasted Dec 2016. Rated 91/100.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The nose offers floral and stone fruit notes with peach, honey and some orange notes on the palate.
Kimberly Inksater - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Classic Riesling notes. Petrol, apple, nuts, peach and apricots on the nose and palate. A crisp acidity that refreshes and cleanses the palate. This would suit a classic roast chicken or turkey dinner or fusion cuisine with some heat.
Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This is a light-bodied and crisp riesling that packs lots of flavours like lime, minerality, wild flower honey and green apple. Its great acidity makes it a perfect food wine. Try it with shellfish or pork roast. The acidity will cut right through anything salty, so Asian foods would be another good pairing.

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.
