Reviews and Ratings

Amanda Ali rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

I consider myself a wine-lover, not a wine snob; yet when it comes to chardonnay, I can carry a slight wine-snob-esque aura. My chardonnay experience is hit-and-miss (I am not a fan of a wine that tastes like I am directly licking the oak barrel...but, to each their own). This chardonnay is NOT that at all. I was pleasantly surprised, especially for the price point ($15.99). The best descriptor I have for this wine is creamy and mouth-watering. It has a subtle aroma of vanilla and tropical fruit, banana and ripe mango in particular. When you drink it, this medium-bodied wine blankets your mouth like a chardonnay hug, leaving a long finish with tingle of spice, a hint of oak, and the perfect amount of acidity to make your palate long for more. The bottle notes say this chard pairs well with seafood (which I would not doubt)and it was also the perfect partner for my carrot-ginger soup with fresh bread and cheese. Win for Chardonnay!

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.
