Reviews and Ratings

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

Big aromatics on this Spanish blend. Floral notes, tropical lychee, canned mandarin orange. Off-dry, medium body, medium acidity, well balanced. Paired well with Belizean chicken tortilla soup. Easy sipping on its own likewise. Crowd pleasing appeal, approachable and great value. Tasted 2015 vintage in July 2017 and 2016 vintage in October 2017. Consistency across vintages. Tropical fruit approachability and great value. Enjoy! 90 points. BespokeTastings
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Always lovely. This wine is lively, spritzy, and perfect to beat the Summer heat. It is zingy and playful featuring stonefruit, citrus, pear and lemon-lime soda notes. 89 Points.
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Light bodied, soft and mellow, with lemon-lime flavours and almost off-dry palate and a hint of smoke on the finish. Perfect with salad or shellfish

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.
