Reviews and Ratings

Alex & Priya - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Alex: Exotic, lavish style that some may say is over the top for the region, but I think this is brilliant, and in a finely balanced state of maturity right now. Such a sweet-seeming, sappy nose of all forms of orchard fruit with a fine undercurrent of nutmeg spice and summer blossoms. Awesome fruit density and succulence to the palate in a hallmark oily texture and bound with adequate acidity, a remarkable full-blown style of this wine. A joy to behold all on its own.

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.
