Reviews and Ratings

Malcolm Lamont - WSET Adv, CSW rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

A nice bouquet on this wine that gets you to look in the mirror. Lemon, honeydew melon, minerality, and hints of that signature petrol, demonstrating much complexity coming out of the glass. NIce on the palate with a great balance between the off-dry sugar levels and its acidity. The body was a bit low however, and I would be curious to see the 'destined-to-be-great' 2012 vintage of this wine.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Fresh zesty lime, floral and intense petrol (minerality) notes. This wine is light bodied and crisp with a long tangy tart acidity. Enjoy with tuna tartar. Tasted Feb 2017 by @sommsosa | co-owner of bespoketatsings.ca

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.
