Campfire smoky on the nose from aging in Canadian oak barrels, which is a rarity given most wines are aged in either French or American oak. Medium-bodied with good acidity for grilled chicken.

Chardonnay food pairings: egg dishes, Asian dishes, crab cakes, pan-fried cod.

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.

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.
