Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of honey, yellow apple, lemon, minerality, and white flowers; quite fragrant. The taste is a mix of honey and lemon, with medium acidity. A nice oily mouth-feel, and a long lemony finish. I had this paired with roast ham, and it was a excellent match.
Kristin Perrin rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Limey minerality, white peach, sweet floral nose.
Very similar palate with mouthwatering acidity and bursting minerality.

Pork with apples. Nuff said.
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Lime and mineral and the nose. Peach, apricot, lime, and white flower follow. Not enou acidity for me, but pleasant.
Terry Jeans rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A fragrant Riesling from Ontario. It showcases the nice aromas that come through from this grape in a cool-climate. Chemical, floral, green apple, with high acidity and a little sweetness, this is perfect with spicy Asian dishes.
Valérie Dufour rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Notes of petroleum. Well-made affordable Riesling from Ontario. Would pair well with a tarte tatin.
Jane Staples rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Light citrus lime minerality on the nose, along with subtle white floral notes. Tasty fresh palate with peach, citrus and minerality. Good acidity and crisp mouthfeel.

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.
