Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lovely aromatic apricot and lemon nose. Luscious palate shows tart apricot, lemon and floral notes, with a satiny mouthfeel and tart fruit finish to complete a very pretty picture.
Tasted June 2018
La Joya Gran Reserva 2017 is a well-priced and exotic Viognier produced from the Bisquertt Family Vineyards in the Colchagua Valley. This is a different style of Viognier with exotic florals and honey on the nose, white flowers, cake spice and yellow pear and tropical fruit flavours on the palate wrapped up in a vibrant acidity. Perfect for mild to medium curries or grilled lobster tails with lemon butter. - 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.
