Philippe Perreault, Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This wine has almost 6 years now.

The color is Clear golden.

At the nose, you can find Apple, Lemon peel, sea salt and a small touch of vanilla.

This wine is now fresh, medium-bodied and long on the palate.

That's an excellent choice to match seafood.

Serve it at 9-11 degrees.

Enjoyable now but can be aged 2-3 years.
Adam Bower rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Nova Scotia's premiere grape varietal, and a perfect match for local seafood. Tropical fruit, grassy notes, nice zesty citric acidity, and some subtle buttery, vanilla notes from the barrel aging of 6 months, but does not over power. A reliable level of quality that delivers year after year.

Pair this wine with shellfish- nice big Digby Scallops with a vanilla saffron risotto, or a lobster dinner! The citrus and buttery notes, along with some tropical fruit will do nothing but compliment shellfish!

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.
