Jon Steeves rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

A wonderful, golden, complex, mouthwatering Gruner Reserve. Smokey Flint, fresh red apple, white pepper, yellow plum. Long finish with persistence of flinty minerality, lemon zest. I enjoyed first with double smoked aged white cheddar and deep fried corn tortillas then dove deeper with an exceptional pairing main course of fish tacos with traditional Belizian fixings of guacamole, pico de gallo. Tasted Dec 2016 rated 92/100. A fantastic Gruner.
Colin McKone rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Straw in colour with aromas of toasted nuts, green apple and smoke. Light bodied with mouthwatering acidity with tart green apple flavours leading into a short finish. This will pair well with creamy or soft cheeses and seafood.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of white flowers, almonds, and green apple. Medium acidity, with tastes of apple and apricot.
Lynn van der Linde rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Toasted nuts, pear, with a hint of smokiness on the back-end. Lovely with a combination of appetizers at your next holiday gathering.
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Another light and fresh Gruner with soft floral nose but more toasted nuts, a little smoke and marzipan on the palate, very delicious.

Natalie's Review

Allram Kamptal Reserve Grüner Veltliner 2014, Kamptal, Austria: A crisp, vibrant Austrian white wine made from the country's classic Gruner Veltliner grape. Only 1,000 cases were produced of this wine. Lots of mouth-watering acidity and lime flavours. It'll keep well in the cellar for at least another 5-7 years. Pair with fresh seafood. Drink: 2016-2021. 13% XD 750 mL Score: 91/100. January 8, 2017 Top Rated White Wine. Scrumptious Seafood Wine  Full Review

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.

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.
