Reviews and Ratings

Heather rated this wine as 90/100
Holly Bruns rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Very aromatic; buttery rich with tropical fruit balanced by a little acidity; if you like this kind of big, bold Chardonnay, this is inviting in the glass.

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.
