Wonderfully concentrated in flavour without a trace of heaviness on the weight. Here's minerality if you've been wondering what the heck that is. Aromas of peach, dry apricot and lime. Some kind of wonderful!

Reviews and Ratings

Mark Cochrane Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A pale yellow Riesling with peaches, apples and citrus on the nose. Flavours of apple, honey and citrus really standout. It has a nice balance of fruit and acidity with a fresh crispness when chilled. Paires well with chicken or Asian dishes as it has a long tart citrus finish
Carrie rated this wine as 75/100 with the following review:

A little too mouth drying for me but not bad

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
