Kimberly Inksater rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

I was pleasantly surprised by this low budget Ontario wine. Honey, stone fruit and floral aromas. With medium acidity and body, this white paired well with dahl and chicken curry at Shafali's in Ottawa.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Aromas of yellow apple, peach, minerality and a touch of lime. The taste is laid back apple and lime with a slightly oily mouth feel and medium acidity. I'll be trying this with pasta with a pesto sauce.
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Floral, honey and ripe peach on the nose. Medium-bodied, medium acidity with a peach and honey finish. Tasted April 3, 2016.

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.
