Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Fragrant pear on the nose, with a palate showing ripe pear and a slight herbal touch. Off-dry with a medium-long ripe pear finish.
Alex & Priya - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 79/100 with the following review:

Priya: smells like cinnamon flavored candy. Like being in a candy factory. Very sweet but not cloying, with a teensy bit of that cinnamon coming through. Not sure what I'd pair this with but it's an interesting sip. 78 pts

Alex: Interesting medium-sweet drop from the rkatsiteli grape. Unique nose, cinnamon, black licorice, rooibos tea, honeydew melon and pear. Sweet indeed Priya, however for me it is a bit cloying and lacks enough acidity for balance. It is tasty however, and finishes with a wallop of pear! 80 pts
The Georgian winemaking region of Kakheti dates its viticultural roots back thousands of years. Today, it makes 75% of all Georgian wine. Wines are made from the native, ancient Rkatsiteli grape. - Community Wine Reviews

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.

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.
