Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

An Alsatian Riesling with a subtle nose of citrus and minerality, followed by a palate showing citrus lemon, white tree fruit and minerality. Bright acidity, mouth-watering mouthfeel and a long citrus finish.
Trevor Sabourin - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

This dry Alsace Riesling has typical aromas of lemon/lime, green apple/pear, apricot, and a stony mineral character, with slight hints of honey developing. On the palate, this wine is somewhat disjointed: while the acidity is high, the fruit character lacks freshness (bruised/oxidized) and the alcohol is too noticeable (though only 12.5). Probably would have been at its best last year. Tasted Oct. 2016.

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.
