Natalie's Score: 91/100

A lovely PEC Chardonnay with aromas of green apple and toasted almond. Pair with roast chicken. From the Niagara-On-The-Lake wine region, Closson Chase, The Brock 2018 Chardonnay is a beautifully-crafted, balanced, cool-climate Chard with ripe yellow apple, plum, ripe stone fruit, green herbs, toasted nut, lemon curd and buttery toffee flavours wrapped up in toasty oak spice on the palate. Chill and enjoy with butternut squash gnocchi or lobster bisque. Drink or hold.

Chardonnay food pairings: roast chicken, grilled veal chops, lobster rolls.

Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A gorgeous Niagara River Chardonnay with aromas of lemon, almond, yellow apple, pear and hints of warm spice. Full bodied and smooth on the palate with medium acidity, ripe, vibrant orchard fruit and a finish of warm baking spice along with a slightly mineral hint. This is the perfect wine to accompany your next roast chicken or even a turkey dinner.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.

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.
