Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This big O sucked me in from first contact. The bright brilliant floral aromatics stand vibrantly open, calling you to have another sniff. On the palate, once you can sneak past the intense nose, this unique Riesling Gewürztraminer blend offers a taste of fresh perfumed floral bouquet, like eating a rose petal sandwich covered in delicate orange blossoms. Wow. This is a must try for those who love floral elegance in their wine. Uniquely positioned for sipping or pairing with Vietnamese rice wraps, sushi, California rollls or dim sum. Tasted Jan 2017. Rated 88/100.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Off dry floral and fruity white wine with prominent notes of ripe apricots, yellow apple, poached pear and Lemon honey. Light body, moderate acidity and long sweet honey lemon finish. Residual sweetness vs acidity is out of balance for me. Served uber chilled! Enjoy with jalapeño poopers. Tasted Jan 2017 - @sommsosa / bespoketastings.ca
Carmen Chelick rated this wine as 65/100

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.
