Reviews and Ratings

Darlene Morrison rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This may be a funny wine review in comparison to most I have written but I tested and drank this bottle of Sawmill Creek “Riesling” over 2 evenings of binge- watching episodes of season 4 of The Walking Dead.

If you have watched this series, you know that you watch more than one episode on Netflix per evening and as many as you can handle before bed time.

The episode I saw, the Governor comes back and tries to take over the prison. It was a very intense and sad scene of one of the great characters dying in the process. The wine certainly held up to this.

With a light, off dry , taste that had a sweetness and hint of honey and ripe peaches, it was a force to be reckoned with. It tasted so yummy, even with my emotions being erratic during a few scenes.

I would give this wine a score of 89/100 and definitely recommend it for either a night sitting at the fire or during your television binge -watching.

If you are looking to have a bottle of wine for dinner, I would think pairing it up with a good chicken, fish or seafood, it would be a hit.

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.
