Nick Onischuk rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

The Beringer Founders Estate Pinot Grigio 2013 is a great wine to enjoy on a hot summer day. Aromas of apple and lemon carry through to the palate. This wine is very refreshing and will not disappoint! (Score: 88, Nicholas Onischuk, Tasted April 14, 2015)
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Gold tinged pale straw, with aromas of yellow apple, apricot, and lemon. There's a nice fresh acidity to it and great minerality. The finish has a slight creaminess to it, blending well with the apple and lemon. The tasting I tried this wine at gave me the opportunity to try it with apple smoked salmon with very pleasing results.
Matt Steeves rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A wonderfully crisp and refreshing white wine with beautiful apple, stone fruit, and mineral elements. Terrific wine to enjoy with shrimp cocktail, summer salads, or on its own. Tasted April 2015. 88 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca

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.
