Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Aromas of peach, pear and lychee with some floral hints. Off-dry, and nce balance of fruit and floral hints on the palate with a bit of balancing acidity. Enjoy with slightly spicy dishes.
Craig Haynes WSET3 FWS SWS rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This blend of vidal and riesling offered elegant, expressive aromas of citrus and stone fruit as well as some subtle white floral blooms. Medium bodied, where the spotlight shined on sweet but not juicy citrus and stone fruit flavours. These flavours were lifted by an appealing lighter touch acidity.

Crafted from 67% vidal and 33% riesling grown in Ontario, this kosher wine is ready to drink. Enjoy.

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.

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.
