Reviews and Ratings

Julia Kelada rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

This is such a deceiving wee wine! It appears to show light and fruity aromas but once you take that first sip.... well lets just say shes like a chameleon!

On the nose the fruits are of sweet cherries, blueberry jelly and logan berries. Herbal tones of bay leaves and sweet floral tones of violets.
On the palate the fruits are those of red cherries, black berries, logan berries and cranberries which present a dry and slightly tart taste which is balanced beautifully by the floral tones of the violets. Well rounded tones of cedar box and vanilla marry together coating the tongue with a creamy texture before introducing tones of coffee. The tannins are smooth and release final spices of nutmeg and white pepper before the velvety, lengthy finish. This wine is dry and full of creamy personality.

Bottoms up!

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.
