Reviews and Ratings

Carla rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is Riverview's first syrah. It is a beautifully intense wine. Rich in deep, dark fruits and a dry coffee mouthfeel with a weight of 14.5%.

"A powerful Syrah. Toasted vanilla, ripe currants, pepper and espresso bean grace the nose and continue on a medium-full palate of lush blueberries and stewed plums. Scrumptious with bacon and cheddar burgers." (Riverview tasting notes)

"This is Riverview’s first Syrah, all from sourced fruit, and it’s a beauty. The nose is rife in peppery-smoky notes with currants, licorice, earthy-meaty bits, toast, spice and red fruits. Very rich with a lovely blueberry note over top the smoke and cracked pepper with a fair amount of length through the finish." - 91 points, Rick VanSickle, Wines in Niagara

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.
