Natalie's Score: 93/100

Spectacular! Rich, concentrated and hedonistic, yet with a nervy edge in this South African Chardonnay. A chardonnay lover's chardonnay. Perfectly balanced between luscious ripe peach and green apple, toasty oak and a nervy seam of acidity for a range of dishes, from roast chicken to seafood. Please bring some the next time you drop by. Highly recommended.

Chardonnay food pairings: prawn bisque, chicken breast, frittata, cheese fondue, turkey.

Reviews and Ratings

One of South Africa's benchmark producers of Chardonnay in a cool climate region of the country of Hermanus. A concentrated vein of tree fruit and minerality. - 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.
