Shelley Harris rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A lovely lemony aroma and a crisp, citrusy taste. This wine would pair well with simply seasoned grilled seafood, such as a garlic and lemon marinated shrimp.
Martha Kelly AIWS reviewed this wine as follows:

This light and refreshing wine has flavours of lemon-lime, green apple, and a slight almond complexity that carry through on the mouth-coating finish.
Pair with summer salads or spicy shrimp.
Drink now or keep until 2016.
Date tasted: November 2014.
Jane Staples rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Herbal and white floral on the nose with a slight licorice aroma. Ripe peach and pear on the palate with slight herbal touch. Buttery mouthfeel. Long bitter almond finish.
Astrid Young rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

Herbal nose, millefiori, liqueur-ish, eucalyptus and anise. Well rounded on teh mid palate, with a slight oxidation that is quite typical of Soave. Tis a bit fat, but will do well with braised pork, mushroom risotto or eggs benny.

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.
