Stadd rated this wine as 96/100
Martha Kelly AIWS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

With rich flavours of ripe pear, lemon, apricot, slight spice, and minerality this white is all about the fresh flavours of the blend of Rhone grapes. The length is long on the warming, mouth-coating finish.
Pair with pungent cheese, scallops, or a creamy pasta dish.
Drink now or cellar until 2018.
Date tasted: November 2014.
Heather Wall rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A pretty wine crafted from 50% Grenache Blanc balanced with Clairette and Bourboulenc grapes. 100% Stainless Steel fermentation and aging produce a fresh steely wine with aromas and flavours of stone fruit, citrus, steely minerality, and touch floral. Refreshing acidity and long citrus finish. Perfect for creamy cheeses, goat cheese, shellfish.
Tasted: November 2014
Jane Staples rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

An elegant dry white made from a blend of mainly Grenache Blanc, with Clairette and Bourboulenc grapes.
Aromatic with fragrances of peach, citrus, hawthorn wood and spice. Flavourful palate showing apple, peach, pineapple and citrus with a slightly herbal note. Very crisp, light and rich mouthfeel. Long citrus finish. Outstanding value! One of my go-to whites.
Excellent with shellfish, poultry or goat cheese.

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.
