Natalie's Score: 86/100

Terrific buttery and peachy Chardonnay. Round, full-bodied and absolutely delicious. Nice toasty vanilla smoke on the finish.

Chardonnay food pairings: macaroni and cheese, chicken wings, hot buttered popcorn.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Melon and fig aromas with touches of grapefruit, citrus and spice. The wine has medium bodied, soft, tropical fruit flavours, with a creamy mid palate finishing with light spiced flavours, crisp acidity and a lingering finish.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Arômes de melon et de figues avec des touches de pamplemousse, d’agrumes et d’épices. Le vin a un corps moyen, des saveurs de fruits tropicaux, un palais intermédiaire crémeux avec des saveurs épicées légcres, une acidité vive et un fini dur

The Little Penguin Chardonnay is a bright lemon color with aromas of tropical fruit, citrus and spice. This medium-bodied wine is full of soft pineapple and tropical fruit flavors, with a creamy mid-palate and a lingering finish.

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.
