Reviews and Ratings

Kristin Perrin rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Butterscotch and fresh appley nose.
Confirmed on the palate! Lively minerality, pear, vanilla, warm spices that linger.
Full bodied, medium plus acidity.

Baked Brie with warm apple chutney.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Offers an aroma of pears with pear, vanilla and a bit of clove spice on the palate.
Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Tropical fruit, lemon and butter on the nose, followed by a certain sweetness on the palate, and notes of peach, pear and oaky deliciousness. Medium-bodied and smooth. Yum! This wine would pair well with a creamy chicken dish.

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.
