Natalie's Score: 89/100

Vintages Wine Panel: This elegant Chardonnay shows varietal intensity and the distinct qualities of the Marlborough region with aromas and flavors of green apple, ripe peach, vanilla, light toasty oak and a note of tropical fruit. A dry, soft and creamy crowd-pleaser with charming balance brought by a touch of acidity and toast. My note: A lovely, round Chardonnay with rich notes of stonefruit, ripe peach, lime, green apple and passionfruit. Closed with a screwcap.

Chardonnay food pairings: roasted halibut or black cod, cheese tortellini, corn dishes, lobster in butter.

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.

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.
