Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

A rich and vibrant Icewine from the Okanagan Valley’s Grizzli Winery. Made from Merlot grapes, a gorgeous brick red colour. On the nose elements of stewed strawberry preserves, plum chutney and figs leap from the glass! Sweet and divine with a decadent mouthfeel. Hints of black forest cake and chocolate over red coconut cherries. Beautiful and well balanced. A perfect accompaniment alongside macarons or cake or on its own after any meal.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The perfect decadent end to a nice meal. Aromas of date, raisin, blackberry jam and honey. Full bodied and luscious on the palate with a lot of those honey, and dried fruit notes, as well as a hint of nuttiness. Enjoy with creme brule.

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.
