Reviews and Ratings

Marcia J. Hamm rated this wine as 96/100 with the following review:

This 2008 vintage is one of only 1800 bottles produced. Oak fermented in the Vin Santo style, Gorgeous Amber-orange in colour, this late harvest Torrontes grape offers layers and layers of flavours and aromas. Sweet (but not cloying)with apricot, honey and butterscotch on the nose, the aromas continue on the palate with an earthy, cinnamon and nutty finish. I'm also wondering if there's some botrytis at play here, with those almost moldy apricot flavours dominating(not a bad thing in this case)! An absolutely stunning dessert wine with full body and a finish that lasts forever! Fantastic by itself or try with Peach Melba or any other stone fruit dessert.

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.
