Reviews and Ratings

Julian Park rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Alcohol 11 %, Residual Sugar 9.5, Tartaric Acid 8.7 This classic Riesling beauty is well balanced with a brilliant colour and aromas of peach,apricot, gooseberry, lemon and lime zest. It is delicate on the palate with minerality and lively acid.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Beautiful crisp and tart dry Riesling. Brilliant and bright with great minerality, mouthwatering acidity. Tart lime zest, canned mandarin orange, orange blossom. Pairs well with Thai curry and is drinking well on its own. Tasted 2016 vintage in June 2017. 89 points. BespokeTastings

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.

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.
