Reviews and Ratings

Ruppertsberger Linsenbusch (2017) is a Gewürztraminer Spätlese, Pfalz Prädikatswein. Sweet and zesty all at the same time with honeyed-apricot, lychee, rose petals and sweet citrus wrapped up in a vibrant acidity. Very nice with mildly spiced dishes and fresh fruit desserts. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
