Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A lovely muscat, beautifully golden in color - expressive notes of honey, lemon and orange noted again on the palate with added hints of apricot and tropical fruit, lingering lemon and soothing honey on the finish.
Jay Denney rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

At 178 grams of sugar per litre, this one won't be everyone's cup of tea. But there's enough acid here that it's not overly cloying on the palate. Honey and lemon reign supreme here, with some burnt orange, vanilla and floral notes singing backup.
From Samos, Muscat of Samos is a sweet medium-to-full bodied lemon drop dessert wine. The wine is golden yellow with a faint green fleck. Honeycomb, white flowers, dried apricot and vanilla nougat on the nose. This is dessert all by itself. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
