Reviews and Ratings

Martha Kelly AIWS - CS rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

With youthful aromas and intense flavours of red apple, lime, honeysuckle, honey,peach, fennel, and slight petrol notes this lively wine refreshes on the long finish.
Drink now, or keep until 2015.
Pair with summer salads, goat cheese, or sip on its own. This wine makes a great apéritif.
Date tasted: May 2014.
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

From an area in Australia known for growing cool climate grapes comes this Clare Valley Riesling.
Pale lemon colour with youthful characteristics of red apple, peach, pear, apricot, honey, stoney minerality, petrol. The palate delivers some lemon zest herbaceousness and white peach.
Lively, racy acidity. Perfect accompaniment with fish and chips, grilled sausages, potato chips!
Drink now.
Serve well chilled.
Tasted: May 2014

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.
