Reviews and Ratings

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

A hint of apple and lemon before generous lime, grapefruit, and tropical fruits move in. A hint of citrus blossom does not go amiss. Dry with crisp acidity. Body of 12.1% ABV, full for Riesling, but expertly balanced and integrated in this complex and layered package. Candied lime and subtle minerality in a generous finish. I haven't had many Rieslings from New Zealand, but they have all been memorable. No exception here. Pair with coq au vin (fait avec Riesling), raw clams, or bacon-wrapped scallops.
From the Wairarapa, North Island, Paddy Borthwick 2017 Riesling is so fresh on the nose with lemon and key lime pie, white florals and white grapefruit flavours on the palate. Great mouth-watering acidity for food. Pair it with grilled pork chops. - 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.
