Reviews and Ratings

Craig Haynes - WSET3 FWS SWS IWS rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A beautifully crisp and aromatic sparkler. This 2018 vintage showed a vibrant flavour and aroma profile evocative of honeyed white peach and green apple framed with biscuit notes and stoney minerality. Expect to encounter a steady stream of smooth bubbles, too. Enjoy.

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Made from Vidal grapes, this elegant sparkling wine shows medium fluffy bubbles with floral aromas including white lilies and apple blossoms with asian pear and honeydew following closely behind. Fruit driven on the palate with dry citrus, apple, and a stony crisp finish. Try this with a cheese plate and a smoked salmon starter. Cheers! - Tasted May 2020

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.
