Reviews and Ratings

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A very light, floral Chardonnay/Semillon blend that for me, brings the best of both. The aroma is loaded with white flowers, pear, and apple, with a little vanilla and butter behind it for a smooth character. The taste is medium bodied apple and pear, with acidity and a low/medium. I paired this with a pasta, pesto, & chicken dish to great effect. Vry good value.
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Vanilla and slight floral on the nose. Apple, melon, pineapple, vanilla, oak on the palate. Dry with short finish.
Kimberly Inksater - Sommelier rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Floral, apples,and Asian pears on the nose with those flavours and a hint of oaky vanilla on the palate. A low value dry blend that would pair with fried or roast chicken.

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.
