Reviews and Ratings

Peter Neilson rated this wine as 89/100
Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted June 12, 2018. Colour light salmon. Legs thin suggest low alcohol. Aromas and flavours of strawberries, raspberry, floral notes. Taste, dry minus, light bodied mouthfeel, strawberry, tart, fruity, mouthwatering, very refreshing. Finish medium with strawberry fruit. Easy to drink. I like this wine. A good wine to consume at lunch. I paired it with a Boston lettuce salad and smoked salmon. The wine was able to handle the red wine Dijon mustered and olive oil dressing. The wine complemented the salmon. I wish the price was around $15 instead of $20. Still a nice wine.
From Hawkes Bay, New Zealand, The Doctors' 2017 is a pretty summertime off-dry rosé with great balance of sweetness to fruity acidity. Pair with grilled seafood. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
