Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A blend of Semillon and Sauv Blanc, with the Semillon softening the SB. Still fragrant with gooseberry and white asparagus, but less intense than usual. Rounder palate than SB alone, with asparagus, herbal, citrus and tropical guava still showing. Dry and crisp, quite herbal/vegetal on finish. Perfect salad wine or patio sipper on hot summer days.
Tasted June 2017
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This was ontario wine fun in a glass. Pale lemon green colour. Intense aromas of grapefruit, citrus, nectarine, honeysuckle, daffodil, guava with limestone minerality and also a note of fresh dill, and touch of toast. Flavours of peach, pink grapefruit, candied lemon and vanilla. High acidity, medium plus body and finish with some white pepper and a pickley geherkin note at the end. Very green and well rounded. Pair with a garden fresh salad, poached salmon and steamed mussels. 87 points
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

2015
This 75% Semillon, 25% Sauvignon Blanc results in an interesting floral nose, floral palate to start and moves into an herbaceous, green olive experience. Nice round mouth feel. Made me think of feta cheese and salty snacks. Tasted March 2017

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.
