Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Fresh, crisp, light-bodied with a nuance of sliced apples. There's a careful manipulation of oak that keeps this New Zealand Chardonnay vibrant and clean. Tropical fruit, floral blossoms, creamy texture, wet stone and touch of butter. A lingering nuttiness that begs for another sip. Very nice! Best enjoyed over the next three years.
Enjoy today with creamy pastas, shell fish, scallops in butter.
Tasted: February 2017
Love it! Full-bodied and rich yet vibrant and springy. Energetic aromas and flavours of green apples and lime lift. Mouth-watering. Perfect for roast chicken. - 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.
