Natalie's Score: 90/100

Refreshing and dry: perfect for the deck or dock as an aperitif. Very food friendly for a range of dishes from salad to seafood. Aromas of melon, lemon and lime lift and refresh. There's a lovely Asian pear and hint of spice on the finish. The winemaker, Tasmanian native Susan Doyle, first made wine in the Yarra Valley, Australia where she also created fruit-forward, aromatic wines. This would be terrific with roast chicken.

Pinot Gris food pairings: sautéed scallops, avocado and papaya salad, basil pesto, zucchini and red onion frittata, cedar-planked pork loin.

Created by Tasmanian native Susan Doyle, who has created many fruit-forward, aromatic wines in Australia's Yarra Valley, this is a very food friendly wine from California's Sonoma Valley and can handle seafood, salads and even roast chicken. This Pinot Gris is smooth and mid-weight on the palate. - 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.
