Jay Denney rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Now we're talking! This is great value and a unique offering. Perfect for the upcoming holidays, this tasty number is popping with toffee, tree nuts, and raisins. A drinkable trail mix you might say. Great for after dinner with some shortbread or a cheese and apple board.
Jennifer Havers rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Lovely! Aromas of almond, dried apricots, and toffee. Rich on the palate, with a nice balance of fruit and sweet caramel notes. Enjoy with creme brule, or almond based desserts.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A pretty pale amber coloured port with gorgeous aromas and flavours to match of sultana raisins, toffee covered almonds and creme brulee. So yummy! This is a lovely sweet treat supper with company or as an after dinner indulgence. Pair with mixed nuts and chocolate mousse. 88 points - tasted November 2018
Jane Staples rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Intriguing flavours of dried fruit, marzipan, herbal nuances and crushed nuts on this delicious White Port. Will try it again, chilled, with foie gras next time.

Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Pretty coppery colour, lovely dried apricot, marzipan, peach and melon with a touch of candied peel on the nose and palate. Zippy acidity accentuates and plays up the sweet flavours. Just the thing with a handful of marcona almonds.
Lori Kilmartin rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Lighter than a tawny port but still just as delicious. Aromas of almond, brioche and some minerality. Nice balance of sweetness and acidity. This would be a great wine to sip with some almond cookies or dried biscotti. Tasted Oct. 2/2016

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.
