Jason Solanki rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Fresh, clean aromas of apple, pear and buttered popcorn notes. On the palate, slight oakiness with more apple/butter leading to spicy mid-palate that continues to the finish. Tasted June 2012.
A well-priced Chardonnay from a top Ontario producer, this serves up juicy apple, vanilla, cream and mineral aromas. The minerality plays an important part in the mouth-feel as well, adding extra depth and cut to the sunny fruit painted on a medium body. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Nov. 2012
Bright, focused Chardonnay with yellow apple, pear, roasted almond, buttered popcorn and measured toastiness. Dry, medium bodied, fruit-driven and lip smacking with just the right gentle oak accents. Fine, balanced finish. A terrific cool climate oaked Chard. Source: Vintages Wine Panel

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.
