Tania Thomas rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Vinified with specially selected, hand-harvested and pressed 100% Riesling grapes from Niagara‚Äôs Lincoln Lakeshore at temperatures below -10ºC. Deep golden in colour with aromas and flavours of stewed orchard fruits, raisins and lemon drops with perfectly balanced acidity. Closes in a long, silky, tangerine-tinged finish. Perfectly matches with aged Stilton and foîe gras.
Heather Wall rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Citrus, apricot, canned peaches, caramel, toffee, toast over a palate cleansing acidity. Rich and smooth texture. Pure indulgence. Serve slightly chilled. Salty cheeses and dried fruit platter.
Tasted: November 22 2014

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.
