More Wine Reviews and Ratings

This is anything but a typical California Chardonnay. It has no residual sugar. It does not undergo malolactic fermentation and does not see any new oak. The wine is aged sur lie for about 6 months in old Hungarian barrels. Frequent lees stirring gave it depth and minerality while the acid remains bright and cleansing. This is a Chardonnay meant to be crisp and refreshing and to express the beautiful taste and smell of fresh fruit from a region known for great Chardonnay.

  Best Books of the Year

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.
