Nick Onischuk - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

The Cattail Creek Barrel Fermented Small Lot Chardonnay 2010 is a great full bodied wine full of apple, peach and buttery notes. Tasted October 7,2013 87/100
Rich and robust with buttered toast, coconut oil, baked apple, pineapple and smoke aromas. On the palate, a juicy fruit core and creamy mouthfeel, with bright acidity underlying ripe fruit and smoky notes, all leading to a buttery, toasty finish. Very successful oaked style of Niagara Chardonnay. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, July 2013

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.
