Wonderfully rich and concentrated yet refreshing and crisp too: it's got it all! Lemon-lanolin and stone on the nose. Intense lemon and lime zest on the palate with mouth-watering juiciness for a wide range of dishes. Liquid lovely!

Riesling food pairings: sushi, paprika chicken, turkey dinner with a spicy stuffing.

Reviews and Ratings

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

The 2010 - Sweet, and raisiny - it paired really well with blue cheese and nuts.
This wine is made with 20% dried grapes in the Venetian appassimento method. Complex notes of candied citrus, lime peel, green apple, pear, peach nectar and minerality set the stage for a richly textured wine with a good interplay of fresh and candied fruits and a nice mineral backbone. Complex, layered finish. An attractive touch of petrol signals the early stages of this wine’s evolution. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Jan.

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.
