Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

An intriguing Gamay from Creekside Winery. Pretty pale purple coloured with a delicate lavender sheen and engaging aromas featuring dark cherry, plum, anise and milk chocolate wrapped in leather. Flavours follow through with bright red fruit, cinnamon and allspice. Light bodied with mouthwatering acidity and silky tannins. Well balanced. A perfect pair for salmon or lake trout. Tasted October 2020
Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Jammy red fruit and tart red berries, especially cranberry, accented by oak spice such as nutmeg and clove, and with suggestions of cocoa, forest floor, and dried leaves. Smooth and easy-drinking with bright acidity, gentle tannins, and tart red fruit flavours through the finish. To me, with cranberry, oak spice, and dried leaves, it smells like Thanksgiving time in the autumn. Appropriately, I would enjoy this alongside turkey, stuffing, roasted vegetables, and cranberry sauce.
Trent Mayers rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Interesting take on Gamay. Nutmeg and clove spiced new French oak gives way to sweet, ripe strawberries and tart red cherries. Soft tannins, but nice acidity. Dishes with lots of cheddar like macaroni & cheese would pair up well. 3.5 stars out of 5.
Creekside 2017 Gamay is a juicy, medium-bodied red wine from the Niagara Wine Region with layers of ripe red plum, cherry, leather and cracked pepper flavours on the palate. So easy to enjoy. Pair with barbequed chicken. - 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.
