Reviews and Ratings

Rich, voluptuous Chardonnay that nonetheless exhibits a fine lithe quality. Baked apples, grilled pineapple, banana, sandalwood and vanilla round out the aromas and flavours. The mouthfeel is quite elegant, the finish smoky and seductive. This is an impressive effort. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Sept. 2013

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.
