Reviews and Ratings

Des Dutrizac rated this wine as 90/100
Lesley Quinn - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of ripe peaches and pineapple and just a hint of orange blossom, make it so I could smell this wine all day long. On the palate the apricot flavour joins the fruit party with a slightly spicy white pepper finish. Try it out with the soothing tones of a piano playing in the background, as any food will be overpowered by the wine.
Heather Cameron rated this wine as 1/100
Vibrant peach, cantaloupe, orange peel and citrus blossom on the nose. Quite mouthfilling with a medium-full body, smooth texture and ripe fruit core, where ripe mango makes an appearance. There’s a flinty white-pepper edge to the finish. Enjoy as a sipper. Source: Vintages Wine Catalogue.

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.
