Natalie's Score: 88/100

Buttery and rich with campfire smoke from toasty oak aging on this Californian Chardonnay. Green apple brightness mid-palate.

Remarkable Roast Chicken Wine

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Shelley Harris rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Buttery aroma and a buttery and citrus acidic taste that would pair well with an Indian-inspired butter chicken comprised of warm spices of cumin and turmeric, and a creamy-yogurt based sauce.
Astrid Young Sommelier ISG CAPS rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Up front very typical buttered popcorn aromas and tropical notes of pineapple, prickly pear and guava. Nice and silky textured however lacks body on the mid-palate, where the acidity takes over, cleaving some vanillin to the sides of the tongue. Finishes the same, a bit one-dimentional but would be really nice with a nice filet of pickerel, pan fried in a lemon beurre-blanc.
Tom Vigeant reviewed this wine as follows:

Buttery and apple and pear aromas, some tropical fruit. Medium bodied, balanced acidity. Classic new world chard with oak evident but still in check.
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Beringer Founders Estate Chardonnay has ripe pear, pineapple, and mango flavors highlighted by citrus, Granny Smith apple and hints of baking spices.

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.
