Reviews and Ratings

Lesley Quinn - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

The Edelschuh vineyard epitomizes the notion that with great effort comes great rewards. With an altitude of 570 metres above sea level and a average inclination of 85 degrees you can only imagine how difficult it is to harvest this mixture of red, blue, and black slate vineyard. The reward is this incredible Sauvignon Blanc full of ripe mangoes, a spicy minerality that leaves you wondering how they have captured the slate characteristic so perfectly. It is denser and more full bodied than the typical Sauvignon Blanc, a true representation of the unique terroir. I paired it with swordfish, lightly poached with a light lemon sauce, as I wanted the wine to be the superstar in this match.

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.
