Aimee Fowler rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This Pino Gris provides a refreshing and vibrant wine with lots of fresh citrus notes, crisp pear and some hints of stone fruit. Great acidity throughout the palate, along with a nice balance of sweetness and heat. Perfect to pair with lighter fair, such as pork and seafood.
Dianne Fisher rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

An impressive Pinot Gris from Inniskillin. The nose is complex with notes of orange peel, honey and green tarragon herb. Medium to full bodied palate which would compliment dishes of veal or citrus cured cod. Lingering lactic notes give a warming and soothing sensation and persistence.
Darlene Myers rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Refreshing and crisp, this delightful Pinot Gris was easy to drink. Bright flavors of honey and peach with some zest from citrus notes make for a mouth watering wine. A very nice wine to accompany many chicken dishes, seafood, and pasta.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Refreshing and crisp with apple and lime flavors that gives way to a lingering finish that conveys almond and a touch of nutmeg

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.
