Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted June 28th 2017. Colour medium yellow, thin and quick legs. Aromas, passionfruit, lime, gooseberry, green bell pepper, lemon grass, green herbs. Taste medium fruit, very light body, minus medium dry, medium minus acid, overall a nice easy to drink wine approachable. Paired with New Zealand Geen Mussels and Riggiano cheese flakes. Green Mussels available at T&J seafoods in Waterloo Ont.

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.
