Matt Steeves rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

A 2014 'Nouveau' white wine from a well established Niagara on the Lake winery, Reif. Kerner, the grape used in this wine, is better known in its native Germany, and one can see why when you enjoy what this has to offer. Light and fruity, with a fair amount of residual sugar, this fresh young wine is loaded with tasty lemon-lime, and yellow apple notes. A long apple finish makes this a very easy going wine that is sure to please the crowds. Enjoy with spicy Asian cuisine, finger foods, turkey, or simply on its own, but enjoy soon as this style of wine is designed to be enjoyed now! At its price it offers good value and an opportunity to try a unique wine done in a unique style. Tasted November 2014. Matt Steeves - www.nataliemaclean.com
Martha Kelly AIWS rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

This wine has flavours of sugar plums and candied lemon with chamomile and peach. With medium body, with wine is perfect for simple pleasures like white pizza and fettuccini Alfredo.
Drink now or keep until 2016.
Date tasted: November 2014.

Natalie's Review

Reif Estate Winery Hanging Man Kerner Nouveau 2014, Niagara River, Ontario VQA, Canada: Youthful and vibrant nouveau white wine from Niagara! Bottled soon after the grapes were harvested in time for beaujolais nouveau celebrations. Off-dry allows it to pair extra dry holiday holiday turkey and side dishes.

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.
