Absolutely fascinating aromas of oven-dried apples, honey and sweet tobacco set the scene. There's plenty of appealing sweetness here, though the undercurrent of bright acidity keeps things perfectly, lip-smackingly in balance. The finish sails on and on. Serve lightly chilled with (or as) dessert, or if thinking main course, pair with spicy ginger pork and samosas. Source: Vintages Wine Ratings and Reviews, March 2013

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.
