Reviews and Ratings

Trevor Sabourin - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is the first Gruner Veltliner made in the Okanagan Valley. It is a somewhat bigger, fuller take on Austria's signature grape, but still has plenty of finesse. The nose shows lime zest, nectarine, yellow apple, nutmeg, white pepper, herbaceous notes of tarragon and bay leaf, lots of chalky mineral character, and touches of almond and honey. On the palate there is more lemon/lime citrus, lots of white pepper, a touch of menthol, and more honey/toasty/almond notes. The alcohol is a touch warm, but this will integrate nicely with the medium-high acids and smooth, round texture. Finishes quite long with lots of mineral, almond, toast, and spice. Innovative and very compelling. Tasted Nov. 2016.

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.
