Meg Charette rated this wine as 81/100 with the following review:

A light bodied, off dry wine. Dominating notes of fresh green apple, macintosh apple and juicy lemon. Subtle hints of peach pit and under ripe pear. Mouthfeel is very tart and mouthwatering. Moderately long, refreshing finish of green apple and lemon pith.
Jon Steeves rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Medium-bodied, zesty lime, lemongrass, apricot peel. Pairs well with chicken nachos and mild jalapeño. Tasted 2017 vintage in July 2018. 89 points
Jennifer Havers rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of peach, pear, wet stone, and apricot. Light bodied, refreshing, with lots of stone fruit, and nice mineral notes on the finish. Enjoy with soft cheeses, pate or mild cured meats.

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.
