Natalie's Score: 93/100

The luxurious white pear and lime notes in the wine cut through the richness of cream dishes. The Chardonnay’s vanilla-smoke finish comes from the barrels made from oak imported from the French forests of Alliers, Vosges and Troncais which air dries on the estate to infuse them with crisp, icy winds of the Atlantic.

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.
