Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Fruity and floral! Aromas of peach, melon, lychee, and honeyuckle. Off dry, and medium bodied on the palate with lots of ripe fruit (peach and pear) on the palate and more floral notes. Pair with a mild curry dish or citrusy shrimp pasta.
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This is always a pleasant, fun wine. It has an aromatic, floral nose with hint of honey and clover. It is just off-dry with a clean, round palate. Melon and ripe peach notes dominate on the palate. Highly quaffable! Pair with Thai food, shrimp or crab. Tasted August 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
From the Catalunya wine region, Viña Esmeralda 2017 is a great value Muscat and Gewürztraminer white wine blend under $15. A lovely sniffer, fresh and tasty with grapey, melon, citrus zest flavours with a spicy, clean and satisfying finish. Chill and enjoy with smoked salmon Bennies and herbed quiches. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
