Natalie's Score: 89/100

Lovely notes of green apple, lime with a fine mousse. Light-flavored and lovely like a blanc de blancs.

Chenin Blanc Extra Dry food pairings: raw oysters, fried or lightly battered shellfish, sushi, sashimi, mixed antipasti, eggs benedict, as an aperitif.

A hint of breadiness gently weaves through aromas of ripe Courtland apple and lemon-citrus on the nose; just off dry with remarkable acidity, the palate is medium bodied with a fine mousse and slightly creamy texture up front, refreshing yellow grapefruit flavours and yeasty overtones in the middle and a long, citrus-laced finish.

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.
