Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A beautiful Pinot Gris from the 2016 vintage. Bright pale straw. Declared 12.5% ABV. Stone fruit, nectarine, honeydew melon, with great acidity and well balanced. Medium bodied. Pair this with prosciutto and melon, Citrus drizzled white fish fillet, or easily drinkable on its own. Tasted April 2017. 90 points

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.

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.
