Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

On the nose, aromas of crunchy green apple, peach, floral notes, cinnamon and limestone. It is dry, crisp, and tart on the palate with Macintosh apple flavours, peach, lemon, and loads of minerality plus a beautiful nutty finish. Yum!

Tasted at the Taste Ontario event April 2019.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Beautiful Riesling from some of Cave Spring's oldest plantings. Aromas of clementine, peach, petrol, white florals, and lime pith. Medium bodied, smooth with some bright acidity, lovely lemon and citrus fruit on the palate, with more petrol and stony minerality on the finish. Refreshing and so flavourful. Enjoy with halibut or other rich white fish dishes.
Simon Chen rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Taste of Ontario 2018 @ Ottawa - My favorite Riesling of the event. Beautiful lychee, floral aromas. On the palate, it's dry and has good minerality and acidity.
L.J. Palmer rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Taste of Ontario 2019 @ Ottawa: Pale lemon, medium bodied, crisp and dry with a moderate nose. Tangy citrus aroma, with some floral notes, lanolin and wet stone. Flavours of tart apple and citrus pith, enhanced by the delicious tang from the indigenous yeasts.
Cave Spring Csv 2016 is one racy Riesling from the Cave Spring Vineyards on the Beamsville Bench, Niagara Escarpment wine region. The Riesling grapes for this wine were sourced from some of the oldest Riesling vines in Ontario planted some time in the '70s. Leads with soft orange, lemon flavours with ripe pear, peach and apples on this expressive Riesling from the bench. Pair with a roast pork tenderloin and pear-applesauce. - 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.
