Reviews and Ratings

Craig Haynes WSET3 FWS SWS IWS rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Plenty to like about this marsanne. Impressive floral, white grapefruit, nectarine, honeydew melon scents emerged from this creation from British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley appellation. The palate’s light to medium body was enticingly textured, featuring flavours of citrus, stonefruit and traces of spiced almonds. Fermented in French oak and harvested from vines grown in gravelly loam and sandy soil. Delicious. Enjoy.

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Beauty wine! Aromas of creamy lemon, pear, almond and honey with a slight touch of minerality. Medium bodied, creamy on the palate, with bright citrus flavours, hints of honey and a long finish. Enjoy with creamy seafood pasta.
Julian Park rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The Roussanne has a rich straw colour with a golden reflection. A wine of character and complexity, with notes of pear, tropical fruit, a hint of orange, and vanilla. Some cream and minerals linger on the long finish. “Everything in proportion.”

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.

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.
