Reviews and Ratings

Tony rated this wine as 91/100
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Layers of tropical fruit, vanilla and buttery caramel in a smooth satisfying mouthfeel.
Tasted at California Wine Fair, March 2017
Meg Charette - WSET ADV rated this wine as 81/100 with the following review:

A beautiful California Chardonnay, instantly showing its dominate note of ripe pineapple on the nose and palate. Behind the pineapple there is also fresh green apple, peach pit, marmalade, pecans and a very interesting trace of a cereal note being fruit loops. The experience for the palate and taste buds conveys a lightly rich pineapple butter, with notes of baking spices and an oaky vanilla lying prominent on the tongue. Moderate acidity giving the mouth a fresh crisp feel, balancing out the oiliness of the pineapple butter. Dish pairing suggestion would be a cheese tortellini in a light cream sauce, as it is strikingly complimentary to this wine.

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.
