Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Fresh, floral and whimsy. Delicate notes of orange blossom, white pepper, citrus peel and green apple lead way to a mouthwatering high acidity, voluptuous Chardonnay. The finish is long showing lasting notes of green apple, lime and citrus pith. Enjoy with halibut ceviche. Tasted Jan 2017 - @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A full-bodied Napa Chardonnay with light tropical fruit and toast aromas. The palate gives rich tropical fruit, citrus rind, pineapple, peach and minerality.
Tasted Jan. 2017
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This is a full-bodied California Chardonnay without the overuse of oak influences. Tropical fruits, banana peel, apple, lemon, toast and vanilla aromas and flavours. Bright acidity and some lingering lemon drop on the finish. Not bad value for California.
Tasted: January 2017
This Chardonnay from the North Coast of California, Fleur De California (2014) is vibrant with green apple and melon, there is some toast on the finish, so it has seen some oak treatment, but very judicious treatment of it. The wine is dry with zesty acidity. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
