Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

How delightful. Pale lemon green colour, with light effervescence. Peach, Gooseberry, lemon, tart pineapple, limestone, grass, hint of asparagus, and floral notes of daisy. Flavours of lemon, crisp green apple, pear, dried herbs, pineapple skins, green beans and alfalfa sprouts. gravel, and a touch of clay. Medium acidity, medium minus body and finish. Super smooth and refreshing without the high acidity. Can’t wait to have this again! Worth all of the awards they’ve achieved. Goes down incredibly easy and will be a generous fit to a variety of foods. Pair with goats cheese salad and sauteed yellow peppers, or any variety of seafood, fresh oysters and shellfish. 93 points October 2017
Shelley Harris rated this wine as 95/100 with the following review:

What a brilliant Sauvignon Blanc, with grassy and citrusy aromas and a wonderful taste of grapefruit. Paired so well with a homemade roasted vegetable lasagna, polenta slices substituted for the pasta. Enjoyed so much.
Jane Staples rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

What a wonderful zippy white- mouth-watering, exhilarating acidity and plenty of tropical guava, citrus and a wee bit of grass. Food-friendly, great price, long lime fnish. Buy more than one.

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.
