Natalie's Score: 90/100

Butterscotch and toffee on the nose and palate of this richly layered, full-bodied Californian Chardonnay. Finishes with notes of banana and baking spice. So voluptuous: it's hard to believe there's no oak on this but there isn't. A testament to the ripeness of the grapes themselves. Pair with roast chicken.

Remarkable Roast Chicken Wine

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

An unoaked Chardonnay from Napa, California, with mild pineapple, guava and passionfruit aromas, followed by a clean palate with tropical fruit, citrus lime and minerality. Rich and refreshing, a great choice for your next seafood dinner.

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Crisp green apple, minerality, white peach and light peppery spice aromas pave the way to a rich, creamy, rich mouthfeel with concentrated apple and citrus flavours. Pair with seafood chowder. Tasted Feb 2017 - @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
From well-known producer, Joel Gott, grapes for this Californian unoaked Chardonnay were sourced from vineyards in the Monterey, Napa and Sonoma wine regions. Wine was made and aged in stainless steel tank giving this wine very fresh and crisp qualities, finesse and balance. - 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.
