Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A beautifully aromatic dessert wine with aromas of sweet peach, honey, canned pear, a touch of citrus and a hint of rose. The palate shows mainly ripe peaches.
Heavenly with a peach shortcake or poured over ice cream.
Chris Coughlin - WSET level 3 grad rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

After dinner finisher with aromas of honey, citrus, and orange blossom. On the palate: apricot, peach and citrus flavours. Have with dessert...or without.
Terry Jeans - Certified S rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Very pleasant late-harvest wine with ripe peaches, lime and floral notes. For this price, it is a steal and would be very drinkable if chilled, on a warm summer evening paired with some strong cheeses.
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This wine is a great not-too-sweet dessert wine. The Vidal grape has enough acidity to keep the balance. Lots of lychee on this wine, with some pineapple, peach, apple and a touch of cream. Great for a peach cobbler.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This wine has minerality, white flowers, and a bit of gooseberry and lime ... but just a little. This would be quite nice with a fruit plate or sipping on the patio.
Kristin Perrin rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

White peaches / pear / floral / limey / a touch of honey.

Peach parfait.
