Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Lovely as an aperitif with nuts or as dessert. This white Port style wine is made from Estate grown Frontenac Blanc and Traminette. Intense aromas and flavours of lychee, rose petals, apricot, honey and orange marmalade. Decadence from Prince Edward County and excellent value at sub $30. Great gift wine.
Tasted: October 2015
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A pretty nose on this Wellington, Ontario with with pose petal, lychee and apricot. A luscious palate gives ripe apricot, mandarin orange and lemon custard. Satiny and rich from start to finish.

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.
