Lise Charest Gagne rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

If you want to impress your guests this is the wine for you. One word comes to mind when I taste this, UNIQUE, well I lied also DELICIOUS. A blend of 15 aromatic white grapes grown 100% in Nova Scotia on the Bay of Fundy. Lively fizz dances in the glass surrounded by a peachy pink brilliant hue. Aromas of peach, honey, country roses and candied ginger. Flavors or more honey, roses and citrus fruit. It’s a unique bold yet elegant hit of acidity and sweetness WOW! It’s a fusion of racy and happy and exciting on the palate. It reminds me of sweet tarts. I would enjoy it with something spicy but usually end up drinking two bottles in my hottub when I can find it!

Friends of mine moved from Nova Scotia and brought this amazing wine for supper. Beautiful oeil de perdrix (light pink) robe with a nose... I could have smelled this wine for a long time. Nice aromas of Melba peach, honeydew melon, rose petals and clementines. The mouth delivers as well with great balance between acidity and fruit and a nice effervescence. I would compare it with a moscato d'Asti for the way it is so easy to drink (but it is not as sweet as a moscato) with a low alcohol level. Very high quality and highly addictive. Pretty versatile. You can serve it with foie gras, with cheese, with a nicotine salad or have it on its own. Coup de coeur.

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.
