Natalie's Score: 91/100

A lovely, balanced chardonnay at a great price. Just enough oak to balance the ripe tree fruit, especially pear and green apple. This style of chardonnay pairs well with dishes such as roast chicken and lobster in melted butter. A consistently good producer year after year.

Chardonnay food pairings: basil pesto, prawn bisque, chicken, vegetable lasagna, turkey.

Rodney Strong Wine Estates Chardonnay 2011, Sononma County, California, USA. Pale yellow color. Tastes so smooth and buttery. Perfect balance of oak and pear, green apple flavour. Loved it!

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.
