Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

I love the label on this fun Chenin Blanc from South Africa. It is a great value at just under $13. Lots of playful peach, pineapple, apple blossom and mandarin orange on the nose and palate. This is a lush, silky style of Chenin Blanc. Terrific on its own, with triple cream brie or your next turkey dinner.
Gwen Barton rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lots of character in this medium-full bodied Chenin Blanc out of South Africa. Aromas of white peach, pineapple and white flower blossoms. Tropical fruit flavours of pineapple and guava. Some grassy notes. Flinty, clean finish. Nice wine at a great price. And such an adorable label! Nice pairing with Chinese food. Tasted Jan 2017.
Tussock Jumper is a classic South African Chenin Blanc from the Western Cape wine region. This Chenin starts with a white floral nose, ripe peach, tropical fruits flavours and crisp on the palate, finishing spicy with a mouth-watering acidity. Pair with crab cakes. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
