Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

The Golden Series 2019 Vidal Icewine is heavenly and delicious! Made by the PondView Estates Winery, located in the Niagara wine region, this Icewine offers plush aromas of apricot, papaya, mango, key lime, lemon curd, honey and vanilla. Light, with loads of sweetness and a zest of freshness, this Vidal Icewine delivers a coating sensation, and a long and velvety finish. On the palate: Flavors of apricot, yellow apple, cooked pineapple, honey, lemon curd, crème brûlée and pie crust. Warning: This Icewine will be difficult to share. Enjoy!
Lynn van der Linde rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A sumptuous delicacy from Canada’s Niagara Peninsula region and PondView Estate Winery. Perfectly paired from Brie and phyllo pastry appetizers, sharp cheddars, or a variety of desserts.
Aromas of honey and candied apricots pull through on the palate, with a mouth coating luxurious finish.
Perfect as a hostess or birthday gift (including the birthday cake!).
Tasted May 2021.
Jennifer Havers rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Beautiful deep golden colour. Aromas of apricot, peach and honey, with the slightest hint of cinnamon. Full bodied, smooth and luscious on the palate, with vibrant, balancing acidity and bold ripe and jammy fruit flavours on the palate. Enjoy with warm apple pie.

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.
