|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
A lovely Niagara blend of Viognier, Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer and Chardnnay Musque. Lots of Niagara fruit on display in this bottle: apples, pears, peaches, blossoms, honey and wrapped in fresh acidity. LIght -bodied easy sipping white wine from the reputable Henry of Pelham family. Perfect for fish and seafood, creamy cheeses or pastas.

Pale straw with a golden hue, the 2013 vintage of Family Tree by Henry of Pelham is 13% ABV, Niagara Peninsula VQA. This is a complex blend of aromatic whites. On the label is a tree image with the names of Speck family members. On the nose this wine shows baked apple, candied citrus, lime zest, Orange Blossom, a hint of nutmeg and vanilla, wet limestone minerality. On the palate, it shows prominently green apple, nectarine, orange blossom, minerality. With High acidity, dominant-fruit, this wine is well-balanced, juicy and mouthwatering, making it a pleasant accompaniment with Asian fare and Asian fusion or on its own. Enjoy now.

|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Medium lemon colour with complex and unveiling aromas of yellow pear and apple, citrus, lemon, yellow bell pepper, mineral, metallic with a touch of canned yellow and beans and onion. On the palate grilled pineapple, lemon curd, zucchini, floral and a little bit of other non-descriptive tropical fruit. Medium acidity, body and finish. Fresh and floral. Pair with medium bodied cheeses such as Swiss or Oka and carrot glazed roast chicken. 86 points November 2017
|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Loads of lime, green apple, and a touch of honey. The flavour actually brings out a bit of a floral characteristic. Fresh mineral finish. Good aperitif or to pair with a green salad
|Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
I am a big fan of Henry of Pelham. You can always count on them for precise, well-made wines; some of which are exceptional. Unfortunately this white falls short for me. While the Family Tree has undeniable virtues: freshness, balance, aromatic intensity, there is an overall lack of harmony here. The individual grape seem to stand apart rather than fusing to create a greater whole.
Simple, pleasant, short finish. Drink now.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
A white blend from Niagara Peninsula's Henry of Pelham. Floral, spicy aromatics with Viognier and Gewurtz leading the band. Palate very fruity, with Gewurtz developing on finish. A little too much going on here, without overall harmony.

|Sharon Lécuyer rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
Faint nose with apple, straw and hints of vanilla on the nose. On the palette, interesting combination on minerality, wet stone, lime and a bit of honey on the finish. Pair with BBQed chicken and a salad that has a good balance of both sweet and sour flavours (e.g., honey/fruit; lemon/lime/vinegar).
