Reviews and Ratings

Gwen Barton rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

For lovers of heavily oaked chards. Full-bodied and rich. Pretty golden yellow in the glass . Intense toasted oak notes with undertones of stone fruit. Check out the cool label! Paired very well with aromatic hard cheese and smoked salmon. Tasted April 2019.
BJ Oudman rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Lovers of big bold Chardonnay can count on this Hard Chard to deliver. Pouring a deep golden colour in the glass, the aroma of oak on the nose is followed by an intense attack of butterscotch on the palate. It does not hide its 16% alcohol, making this lush, full bodied Chardonnay enjoyable as a sipper all on its own, best accompanied by reading the story behind the 19 Crimes label.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
