Monique Sosa rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

This Icewine is just, divine. Wildflower honey, bees wax, orange marmalade and stewed peaches. Zingy acidity, cloying mouth feel and long lemon honey finish. The pairings are endless: aged hard cheeses, lemon tarts, pavlova... Maya flan (my fav dessert)... the list goes on.
Matt Steeves rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

World class Icewine from a great vintage. Honey, bees wax, sweet orchard fruit, with a hint of petrol. Enjoy this delicious Riesling Icewine with a rich creme brulee! My favourite pairing. This would also complement spicy Asian cuisine as the rich sugar helps to sooth the palate from any harsh heat. Tasted February 2015. 91 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Kristin Perrin rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Beautiful apricot, honey, noble rot nose.
Rich palate loaded with honey, more apricot and lime.
Mouth-coating sweetness with balanced acidity.

Nova Scotia Apple Pie with a slice of aged cheddar.
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Intense pineapple, honey, citrus, and a touch of floral and ginger. I LOVE Riesling ice wines, what a beautiful flavour to make concentrated!
Valérie Dufour rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Apple compote, quince and honey on the nose. Pure nectar. Divine in the mouth. Depth.

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.
