Natalie's Score: 89/100

Nicely balanced Chardonnay with fresh green apple and lime zest aromas. Judicious use of oak weaves its lightly smoky way through this voluptuous wine.

Chardonnay food pairings: dungeness crab, grilled halibut, oysters, rotisserie chicken, roast turkey.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Only 23% of the 2009 Chardonnay spent 2 months in new French oak and was stirred
twice weekly. This allowed part of the Chardonnay to have contact with the lees and
develop a silkly mouth feel. The remainder of the Chardonnay was aged in stainless
steel tanks to develop fruit characteristics. After 2 months they were blended together before bottling in March 2010.

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.
