Reviews and Ratings

Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pale lemon in the glass with a hint of oiliness on the surface. Soft candied nose that eventually gives up a hint of petrol. Round mouth feel. Some perceived sweetness on the palate but finishes with a mild show of acidity and minerality. Soft but nicely balanced. If you prefer a fruity Pinot Gris style vs racy, mineral Pinot Gris this one is for you. Would pair nicely with chicken, mild fish. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Enjoyable fruit-driven bouquet consisting of peach, apricot, banana, and subtle tropical fruits with just a hint of citrus blossom. Extra dry, crisp acidity, with a pleasant spice note on the palate. Papaya and tropical fruits in the finish. A dynamic wine from the nose through the palate into the finish, always switching it up and keeping you guessing what it will give you next. Interesting and enjoyable. Ideal accompaniment to seared tuna, veal, or roast chicken dishes.
Lovely, lifted and fragrant Pinot Gris from Nelson, South Island, Middle Earth 2017 has so much going for it with ripe peach, soft orange zest, pear and light spicy flavours on a silky palate with good acidity for food. Balanced, zesty and tasty. Enjoy it now. - 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.
