Natalie's Score: 92/100

This Oregon Riesling is bursting with lime zest and lemongrass aromas. Racy acidity runs through the core. Pair with seafood or vegetarian dishes. The Nasty Woman Wines label was founded on the U.S. election day in 2016 by Meg Murray, who had hoped to celebrate the first female president. Though she was disappointed with the outcome, it was her five-year-old daughter Matilda who inspired hope when she asked, “How old do I have to be to run for president?” Her daughter didn’t ask if she could run, but when. The brand launched, backed by a successful crowdsourced campaign. Today, 20 percent of the winery profits are donated to organizations and causes that help get women to the table as leaders and tastemakers.

Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Beautiful! This wine has aromas of fresh lime bursting out of the glass, along with lots of wet stone minerality and some light, white florals. Light bodied on the palate, bone dry, and bursting with vibrant fruit and mouthwatering acidity. More of that mineral note on the finish. Overall beautiful balance. Enjoy with any fresh seafood. These wines raise money for initiatives that advance and empower equality and representation for all.

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.
