Reviews and Ratings

Deborah Podurgiel rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

From four small rows on a two-acre block of organically-grown Pinot Blanc vines in 2006, and two small batch vintages, now comes a crisp, clean and lean, all grown up Pinot Blanc. In the glass, Rollingdale’s Pinot Blanc is bright, pale lemon with light green straw-coloured flecks in the glass. On the nose, there are clean, key lime and mineral aromas, elegant with light herbs and faint, dusty dried tarragon. On the palate, the wine is clean, dry (1.0 residual sugar), delicate with white florals, soft spice and soft citrus zest, with a long and equally zesty lime and soft spice finish. So elegant, fresh and bright, pair this well-balanced white with a grilled Ahi tuna marinated in a bit of shredded ginger.

Rollingdale Winery is wholly family-owned and operated. This is a fascinating certified-organic winery. One of their upcoming events is “an evening of wine under the stars!” The Royal Astronomical Society of Canada volunteers will be at Rollingdale Winery to host a star-gazing event (weather dependent), under the night sky with their telescopes along with your favourite Rollingdale wine. May 7, 2018, 9 to 10: p.m. For more information about this event and the winery, visit rollingdale.ca. Enjoy!

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.
