Reviews and Ratings

Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Jackson-Triggs Winery, located in the Niagara wine region, produces a delicious Chardonnay that shows aromas of mango, banana, citrus blossom, butter, burnt caramel and vanilla. The 2018 exposes a full body, with light and enjoyable acidity. The finish is coating, making this Chardonnay a great sipper. Palate: cooked pineapple, apricot, yellow apple, citrus blossom, butter, caramel and vanilla. Enjoy!
Paula Bernardino rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Discovered this beautiful Canadian Chardonnay on a VIA Rail train from Toronto to Montreal. Light vanilla aroma and apple flavour. Paired it with stuffed ricotta and Portobello pasta.
One of Ontario largest wine producers, this Chardonnay is pleasant for the price. - 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.
