Heather Wall rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A little skin contact has made a pretty pale salmon colour Pinot Grigio. Light and crisp with aromas and flavours of citrus, tree fruit, floral, honey, wet hay and some herbal notes.
This wine is dry and light bodied. It has medium length on a refreshing finish.
Patio sipper or lighter backyard fare.
Drink now. Well chilled.
Tasted - July 2014
Louise Wilson rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A light and refreshing wine with flavours of apple, lemon and honeydew melon. No food required, just add sunshine. Enjoy on the patio after a round of golf, or tuck into your cooler on the next beach day. Drink through 2015. Tasted 2014.
Terry Jeans rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This is light, refreshing, easy drinking vino. Notes of apple and citrus with a zesty quick finish. Could be perfect for a patio with some nice company, served all by itself. If I did have to pair something with it I would go with something like chicken marinated in lime and cilantro.
Nick Onischuk rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

The Inniskillin Niagra Estate Pinot Grigio 2012 is a perfect pairing for your favourite chicken dish. Apple, lemon, grapefruit, and floral aromas on the nose. Apple and citrus flavours on the palate. (88/100) Tasted July 14, 2014
Chris Coughlin rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Beautiful pale rose colour, med/low intensity flavours and aromas of: citrus, floral, and stone fruit. You'll notice the acidity and alcohol ahead of the fruit.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Aromas of peach, apricot, lemon and rose, with similar flavours and a nice apple and apricot finish. This would be quite nice with a chicken breast salad.
Valérie Dufour rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Beautiful "oeil de perdrix" robe. I thought it was an honest wine, but a little short on fruit.
Darlene Myers rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A light crisp and refreshing Pinot Grigio. This medium bodied wine has flavors of citrus and lemon and is perfect with so many foods. Pasta with a light sauce, fish and even chicken. A good price too.

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.
