Natalie's Score: 84/100

A medium-bodied white wine blend from Washington State that makes for a pleasant sipper. The wine is named for wild horses that once roamed the Columbia Valley and stood 14 hands tall.

Reviews and Ratings

Frank rated this wine as 90/100
Darlene Myers - CAPS Student rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

In the white blend of 14 Hands, it's evident the main grape in the blend is Chardonnay. Along with Pinot Gris, Semillion and a few others, I found the white blend to be quite refreshing. Apples, pears and citrus with a floral note makes for a nice refreshing white wine this summer on the balcony.
Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

The 14 Hands ‘Hot to Trot’ White 2010 is composed of mainly Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Viognier and small amounts of other white grape varieties, of which small portion was aged in neutral oak barrels. It is a light to medium bodied wine, with light aromas of washed stones, subtle oak and coconut, light pear and citrus. It is dry, has a food friendly acidity and a medium finish. Drink this wine with food at dinner parties; ready to drink now and will be for the next 2-3 years. Score 87-88 pts. Tasted Nov/12.

Mark Britton rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

A blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, & Viognier this wine is very refreshing and loaded with fruit.  It shows lots of green apple, lemon, peach, and a hint of residual sugar as the Viognier shines through.  A simple, simple, wine that would be great to host with and great to drink a lot of.

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.
