Reviews and Ratings

The light straw hue of this wine offers nothing to the complexity within. The nose ebbs and flows between varietal sensations attributed from the 4 different grape varieties used. Fruit aromas of peach, nectarine, grapefruit and custard apple intertwine with slight almond and cedar, and a hint of lavender. The palate is rich and full, albeit subtle in its assault, with flavors of pear and pineapple, lime and grapefruit, amid lychee, nutmeg and cinnamon spice. The slight soft tannins, thanks to the role of oak aged Chardonnay, rounds out the palate beautifully providing a desirable phat quality, matching so symbiotically with the long and warming finish which continues well after the nights are out.

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.
