Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A crisp and refreshing Central Coast Chardonnay that saw zero oak aging in order to preserve its refreshing characteristics and pure fruit elements that make California Chardonnay so adored around the world. Light tropical fruit, lemon, lime, and stone fruit, make this wine a terrific pairing for seafood dishes, or grilled chicken with citrus compote. Tasted June 2015. 90 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 80/100 with the following review:

Citrus, green apple, some sweet spices and an odd bitterness akin to seed oils.
Tasted: June 2015
This wine was fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks so it is unoaked. Finishes with green apple and lemon zest aromas. - Community Wine Reviews
