Reviews and Ratings

Simon Chen rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

you can smell on the nose that it is a new zealand sauv blanc! grassy, herbal, dry, and smooth acid Very pleasant sauv blanc!
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Raspberry overload with mild baking spice notes. A simple crowd-pleasing fruit-forward Pinot Noir with juicy (high) acidity and a long sweet cherry finish. Enjoy with pibil pork tacos. Tasted Nov 2017 by @sommsosa | bepoketastings.ca

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.
