Wineboy rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

I liked the wine but I feel I need to say that some consumers might be in for a dissapointment. Firstly, if a wine is going to call itself "Pinot Gris" then I expect they are trying to do it in a French/Alsatian style ie. big, full, round. This wine is very crisp and is much more Pinot Grigio in style. Secondly, the worlds wine regulations typically allow up to 15% of another grape variety to be blended in without declaring it on the label. This one I suspect has blended in some Sauv. Blanc. I could be wrong but I saw grassy herbaceous notes and higher acidity levels. Buy it, enjoy it but dont expect Gris.

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.
