Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

This was the Gold Medal Winner of the national Wine Awards in 2018. Love this organic, petrol infused, crisp, Riesling with bright lime citrus, fresh kiwi, and hints of tropical melon. The brisk, lemon zest infused acidity balances well against the lingering sweetness. An exceptional Riesling. Paired this with green Thai curry to offset the heat. Exceptional. 91 points - tasted July 2019
Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Powerful nose with plenty of intense petrol and smoke followed by ripe McIntosh apple. Palate is a balanced offdry, acidity really comes through to offset the residual sugar. A touch sweeter on the finish with even more petrol, honey, apricot jam, and apple pie filling. Certainly a hot vintage Riesling, but the important acidity had been preserved. Ideal for Chinese takeout, chicken tenders sprinkled with powdered chilies, or curries with a little heat.

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.
