Natalie's Score: 89/100

Some kind of wonderful! Balanced Chardonnay with loads of flavour but not heavy. And who doesn’t love the small format? Full-bodied with notes of hazelnuts, apples and peach.

Chardonnay food pairings: roast chicken, grilled root veggies.

Subtle on the nose, there are wispy aromas of vanilla, toast and pit fruit. A delightful mélange of flavour washes over the palate with crisp Granny Smith apple, and ripe Bosc pear to the fore. It’s medium bodied with a nice mouth feel and a perfectly balanced mid-length aftertaste that’s clean, crisp and refreshing. This is well paced, well priced and the perfect dance partner with roast chicken and grilled root veggies. Score: 4 (out of 5) Source: Vic Harradine, winecurrent.com

  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.
