Cherie Cole rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A very good example of this varietal with aromas of citrus, white floral, petrol and wet stone. Medium body, nice acidity, long citrus finish. Pair with curry dishes.
Heather Wall rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A nice blend of Niagara tree fruit, Niagara blossoms, kerosene, citrus and stoney minerality. Acidity is medium+ and refreshing. The finish is long and cleansing. A nice example of Niagara Riesling. Pair to your hearts desire with this wine or sip on it's own. Serve well chilled. Still has some cellar time available.
Tasted: February 2015

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.
