Joe Hache Opimian Society rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Liberated ... love the name and love the wine! Pale straw colour with aromas of green apple, lemon-lime, with floral/blossom notes. It was dry, medium bodied and crisp with none of the overpowering oak a lot of Chardonnay's have. We had it with a cod dish and it paired beautifully!
apple, stone fruit and citrus.
Mark Britton rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

This is the 2011 white wine launched by Rosehall Run and catered to the mainstream. It will however appeal to that mainstream. Pale lemon in colour it shows nice peach and a surprisingly long finish, while being very easy drinking and a great summer wine. Buy now or wait until summer, 2013.
Chardonnay liberated from the sins of the past… We created Liberated to state our unwavering commitment to produce pure expressions of one of the world’s great white wines at a price that delivers exceptional value. Fruit was sourced from a top quality Beamsville Bench site and estate grown Rosehall Vineyard fruit, including our estate Chardonnay Musque clone. Liberated was crafted using meticulous attention to fruit quality and cool, clean fermentation and elevage in stainless steel. The result captures the ‘genie in the bottle’ as a dazzlingly aromatic expression of the great Chardonnay produced in our cool climate Ontario vineyards.

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.
