Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Very light pale salmon colour, with decadent and fruity aromas: Strawberry, raspberry and watermelon with a hint of fresh minty herbal touches. Also some element of limestone minerality On the palate these aromas are echo into the flavours with strawberry, watermelon, and peach. Medium acidity, light body and finish with some sweetness at the end. Dry (5g/L) Fresh, fruity and lively. Pair with whitefish and scallops with light fruit salad and berries.

Jon Steeves rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Crisp, mouthwatering rosé from côtes Catalanes. Saline limestone minerality, wild strawberry, savoury herb. Medium body, well balanced. Paired well with pork souvlaki with dill-infused tzatziki. Would also pair well with baked salmon and a citrus drizzle. Drinking well on its own. Tasted 2016 vintage in Oct 2017. @BespokeTastings 89 points
Monique Sosa rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Fresh floral and dry easy drinking rosé! Aromas are faint to moderate while the palate is bursting with juicy citrus and wild strawberry flavours. Enjoy with smoked salmon cream cheese bagels. Tasted October 2017 by @sommsosa | @sommguidetravels

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.
