Reviews and Ratings

From an iconic producer, Catena's High Mountain Vines 2018 is a dry, full-bodied and well-priced Argentinean Chardonnay with ripe pear, buttercream, and oak on the nose. Good body and acidity. About 60% of the wine was aged in oak on the lees while the remainder was done in stainless steel. Bright and vibrant, pair with lobster Mac and cheese. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
