Reviews and Ratings

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

A delicious value-priced full-bodied Niagara-on-the-Lake Chardonnay that shows just how rich and textured a 'cool-climate' Chardonnay can be. G. Marquis didn't hold back when they produced this bold and flavourful barrel-aged Chardonnay that shows crisp yellow apple, baked pears & biscuits, with sweet toasty oak influence. Creamy and balanced, this single vineyard Niagara Chardonnay would complement rich mushroom risotto dishes, roasted poultry with butternut squash, and is absolute dynamite with double smoked Balderson cheddar, a personal favourite of mine. Drink 2016-2018. Tasted November 2016. 90 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
This wine won a silver medal at the 2013 Decanter World Wine Awards.

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.
