The grapes for this Californian Chardonnay are grown in a cool climate and gravel soils, with excellent drainage. The 2012 vintage of the Chardonnay Jackson Estate Camelot Highlands is sourced from 40-year-old, ungrafted vines. The wine is then barrel-fermented and matured for 8 months in 50% new French oak barrels. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
