Gwen Barton rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay (unoaked)blend. Ripasso style production gives it med bodied texture and generous complexity. Pear, pineapple and white blossom aromas. Gooseberry, honeysuckle and apricot flavours. Zippy acidity. Pleasant finish with some sweetness. Pair with creamy broccoli and cheese soup, and a baguette for a late lunch with friends! Tasted: at A Taste of Ontario April 2019
L.J. Palmer rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Taste of Ontario 2019 @ Ottawa: Pale lemon, aromatic, crisp and off dry. Made using a modified appassimento method, where Sauvignon Blanc skins were added to the wine for a short time to give additional flavour. Big gooseberry and lemon flavour and aroma; very refreshing!

Natalie's Review

The Foreign Affair Winery Enchanted 2017, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada: The Foreign Affair's Enchanted 2017 is a crisp and dry white blend of 45% Riesling and 40% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Chardonnay made in the "ripasso" style meaning the wine juice is re-passed over the appassimento skins and lees giving the wine added texture and complexity. Intense gooseberry, white florals, honey and grape fruit aromas flavours are rich on the palate wrapped up in a bright and balanced acidity. Chill and pair it with creamy seafood dishes.

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.
