Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A full-bodied, elegant Chardonnay with notes of white peach, nectarine, lemon and hint of nuts and toast. Refined acidity, great structure and a creamy mouthfeel.
A very enjoyable Chardonnay, reflecting the characteristics of the Adelaide Hills region in Australia.
Colour:
Vibrant pale straw with green hues
Bouquet:
Attractive aromas of lemon citrus and cashew, with subtleties of honeydew melon and spice
Palate:
A complex palate of fresh lemon pith and roasted hazelnuts, balanced with subtleties of rice pudding and an underlying textural creaminess. A restrained palate with tight mineral acidity and a chalky structure that adds freshness and length to the palate.

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.
