Reviews and Ratings

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

The 2020 Rosehall Run Defiant unapologetically amplifies Pinot Noir's red berry characteristics. Classified as being from Ontario, Canada's provincial appellation, this cheery wine reveals plenty of pleasingly pronounced fresh aromas of just picked red berries. Its flavours evoke wild berries - like wild raspberries and strawberries - and subtle notes of oak spice. Ready to be chilled and poured, this creation feels medium bodied, and extra dry with light touch velvety tannins. I'd serve this with herbed, meaty sauces any day.

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.
