Reviews and Ratings

Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Harvest aromas of green apple and pear, with hints of vanilla from the short time spend in oak. 2015 was a cooler vintage, bringing out more acidity on the palate, and making this wine very food friendly. Perfect with chicken and light pasta dishes.
Tasted May 2017.
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A small percentage of this vintage was aged in oak, the remainder in stainless steel. The resulting wine is soft and fruity - apple, peach, pear - with subtle oak presence of toast, spice and caramel. Nicely done. Try with grilled chicken in a simple marinade.

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.
