Bottle size: 750 ml
Natalie's Score: 93/100
Full-bodied, voluptuous and layered with butterscotch goodness and pineapple aromas. Yet not cloying or heavy, just mouth-filling and soul satisfying. Pair with roast chicken.
Chardonnay food pairings: butter chicken, seafood pot pie, lemon buttered lobster.

|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Gorgeous aromas and flavours of stone fruit, citrus, yellow flowers, acacia and honey. 91 points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
A beautiful medium - full bodied New Zealand Chardonnay from Hawke's Bay. Great value! Zesty peach, citrus peel, ginger and apple brioche. French oak barrique aging has imparted toasted notes. Pair with a thick cut of pan seared white fish. Drinking well on its own as well. Tasted March 2017. 91 points.
|Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Intense aromatics of lime, tart stone fruits and toasty oak feature on the nose. Quite taut and crisp on the palate, with an attractive layered, creamy mid-palate, well integrated oak and lingering key lime pie notes on the finish.
|Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
There is a lot of complexity in this Chardonnay - both in its origins and the wine itself. The last Small Parcels Chardonnay has not been made since 2007 so it's obvious Kim Crawford feel waiting for the optimum grapes is well worth it. The fruit comes from two of their finest vineyards and is hand harvested. Made with indigenous wild yeast (hence the "Wild" in the name) the juice has undergone 10 months in oak and malolactic fermentation (50%).
Aromas of peach, apple and spice. Smooth rounded mouthfeel, almost buttery in texture with flavours of pear, lemon and hazlenut. Medium acidity and a long finish. I paired this with roast pork and sweet potatoes and it had plenty of body and fruit to match the dish. Tasted March 28, 2017.
|Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Pale straw colour. Intense buttery toast aroma and ripe baked apples. Full bodied and rich mouthfeel. Intense apple and other tree fruit flavour and pronounced would toast. This wine would pair really well with cedar plank salmon. Score 90. (S.Segard, reviewed March 26, 2017
