Reviews and Ratings

Camelia Bucur rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Gen5 Chardonnay from Lodi region of California has a yellow golden color appearance. On the nose there is a presence of baked yellow apples that exude from the wine. Fruit forward of pear, creamy, oak and round in the mouth. Off-dry wine, balanced acidity, enjoyable with popcorn on a nice weekend evening.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This golden-yellow hued wine smells like Hunter Valley Semillon on the nose, but is all Chard when it hits the mouth. Aromas and flavours of golden pear, tropical fruit, melon, honey, and scented cream. Delightful sipping wine or pair with lobster and papaya salad. 88 Points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
Kristin rated this wine as 80/100 with the following review:

Crisp, sl mineral- with sushi
The Gen5 winery was established in 2007 by the Lange family, and is now run by the fifth generation. The family originally started farming in Lodi in 1870, with the watermelons planted by their great-great-grandparents who emigrated from Germany. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
