Russell McDowell rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Highly recommended by the LCBO Consultant. Last bottle they had, didn't expect to find any more in the city.

LCBO Card: Cooling mint and sage, honeydew melon and pineapple soothe both in the nose and on a silken-textured palate, where 53 grams of residual sugar are beautifully incorporated without depriving the finish of vivacity and juicy refreshment. Score 91

Natalie's Review

Pfeffingen Scheurebe Spätlese Scheurebe 2007, Q.M.P., Ungsteiner Herrenberg, Pfalz, Germany: Vintages Wine Panel: Scheurebe is a wonderful grape variety to explore. A crossing of Riesling and Silvaner, this variety was developed by (and is named after) famed viticulturalist Dr. Georg Scheu. The grape thrives in sandy soils, so Pfeffingen’s sand and limestone-rich Ungsteiner Herrenberg vineyard is an ideal home. This wine expresses rich grapefruit, lime and mineral character. Its moderate sweetness is balanced by racy acidity, leading to a lip-smacking finish. My note: Totally yummy! Okay it’s got sweetness, but you need to get past that, please. Sweet doesn’t mean simple: this is fleshy, ripely sweet. Totally different ballgame. Apricots, peaches and a parade of other tantalizing tree fruit. Come on, just try it for Pete’s sake. Not a dessert wine but eat with spicy and hot foods or those with sweetness like glazed ham and so on. 14837 11% MD 750 mL  $23.95 Score: 92/100. August 19, 2008  Full Review

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.
