Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Lots of dried apricot and peach, tropical fruit, floral and sweet spices. Honeyed coating in the mouth and lingering finish. Cleansing acidity that awakens the palate for that next mouthful of dessert. Highly recommend.
Tasted: January 2016
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Very aromatic rose and lychee nose, leading to concentrated rose, rich flavours of tropical fruit and ginger on luscious palate. Absolutely delicious! Excellent value. Would make a super gift wine! Enjoy with Crème Brulee, pound cake, nuts.
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A lovely, powerfully aromatic gewurz with loads of tropical fruit, lychee, a hint of nuttiness and spice backed by just enough acidity to keep it from being cloying. Try it well-chilled with butter chicken.
A terrific Niagara Gewürztraminer with aromas of sweet lychee and mango preserves. Finishes with sun-dappled tropical fruit like pineapple and guava. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
