Philippe Perreault, Sommelier rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Clear yellow color with aromas of petrol, honey, lime, citrus, white flower and mineral.

On the palate, this wine is off-dry, light-bodied, crisp and long.

Pair it with Choucroute or sushi.

Serve it at 8-10 degrees.

Ready to drink.
Matt Steeves rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Apple, pear, and mandarin orange on the nose and palate. Refreshing acidity makes this off-dry wine a great value-priced wine to enjoy with spicy dishes, pulled pork, or simply enjoy chilled on a patio this spring and summer. Tasted April 2015. 87 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Sean O'Regan rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Pale yellow, sweet honeyed / spun sugar nose, with peach and citrus. Just off dry, citrus lemon/lime, pear and white peach - long finish. Tasted April 2015
Jane Staples rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Delicate apricot and pear on the nose. Fresh pear, apricot and minerality on the palate. Off-dry, long tart tree fruit finish.

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.

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.
