Reviews and Ratings

Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

What a treat this Framboise is! Beautiful candied, cherry pink in the glass. Fresh raspberries literally jump out of the glass. And the palate does not disappoint. Raspberry, raspberry, raspberry through and through, both sweet and tart. It starts off sweet but then the alcohol and acidity balance out the sweetness on the finish. It would be great with chocolate or pastries and whipped cream but if you don't have dessert - don't despair. This treat is dessert enough on its own! Tasted May 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Shows raspberry is all of its glory: fresh, ripe, jammy, stewed, and more. Lusciously sweet with good acidity to back it up. Pair with a chocolate tart topped with fresh raspberries or other chocolate-raspberry desserts, fashion a fruity Kir or Kir Royale, or drizzle over ice cream.
Southbrook Framboise is a mouthful of ripe, sweet raspberries balanced with vibrant acidity. Nice long full-on raspberry finish. Pair with chocolate mousse. Awarded Silver at the 2019 National Wine Awards of Canada. - 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.
