Natalie's Score: 90/100

This bubbly is a blend of 35% Macabeo, 30% Xarel-lo, 20% Parellada and 15% Chardonnay grapes. A vivacious bubbly at a terrific price! Suggests notes of lime, green apples, white peach, Asian pear all wrapped in baked bread warmth and cinnamon spice. Knock it back!

Chardonnay food pairings: mild curries, Chinese dishes, sushi, lobster, grilled salmon.

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.
