Reviews and Ratings

Aimee Fowler - WSET L2 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A nice crisp and refreshing white wine. Flavours of lemon zest, white grapefruit, and white stone fruit. Hints of pineapple and slight lemon curd. The palate is young and vibrant with fresh acidity. A well balanced wine that is versatile and great with food, such as seafood, white meat and soft cheeses.
If you're not familiar with Austria's signature white wine, Gruner Veltliner, here's a great place to start. This zesty wine offers notes of lime, grapefruit and tart green apple. Lots of acidity. - 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.
