Monique Sosa rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pouring with a little bit of effervescence, this Portuguese Vinho Verde (Albarinho grape) shows moderate aromas of orange blossom, citrus peel, and fresh apricots. The palate is crisp and juicy with mouthwatering acidity and long lasting fresh stonefruit and citrus flavours. Enjoy with a creamy halibut green curry. Tasted Jan 2017 - @sommsosa / bespoketastings.ca
Nicole Lewis rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This is a dry 'green wine' as these white Portuguese offerings are called. Nevertheless this wine appears as pale straw yellow with green highlights. This wine's aromas offer lemon-lime, fresh grass and a fresh sea breeze. This cleansing, light, zesty wine would pair with with seafood such as Bacalhau a Bras (cod fish based).

If you like New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, try this wine.

Very pretty aromas of honeysuckle and tropical fruit. Great balance with a long, citrus-lemon finish. Excellent price at just $9.95/bottle. Tasted July 24, 2016.
Carola Price rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Clear and bright. Lime zest and fennel. Clean, crisp and acidic with a zippy mouthfeel that makes it a very easy drinking wine. Pair with summer salads, grilled fish, lemon squares or nothing at all.

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.
