Reviews and Ratings

Jessica Nagy rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This is a nice dry Niagara Riesling with all the classic aromas of apples, citrus, and tropical fruits. A good balance of acidity and just a hint of minerality, along with the fruit flavours on the palate, make this a thoroughly quaffable wine with a nice, slow finish. Riesling really shines in Ontario and this is a great option for any day of the week.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Fresh aromas of green melon, apple, petrol, honeysuckle, and minerality. Off-dry, with 13g/l sugars, but balanced quite nicely by high acidity. The palate is mostly yellow and delicious apple with a touch of pear. I'm pairing this with a spicy pork stir-fry and rice.

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.
