Reviews and Ratings

Clean, crisp and pretty expression of the Verdejo grape here. There’s an interplay of peach, pink grapefruit, floral and smoky mineral notes on the aromas that carry over to the palate where they’re joined by tangy green apple. The 2011 vintage of this wine scored 90 or more from several major publications – this as-yet-un-reviewed 2012 is a worthy successor. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Jan. 2013

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.
