Natalie's Score: 94/100

From Sonoma Mountain, Sonoma County wine region, Kistler 2020 Chardonnay is a single-vineyard Burgundian-style Chard with great acidity for food. Kistler Vineyards has been producing Chardonnay since 1978 with this example from their estate vineyard in the Mayacamas Range. Dry, medium-bodied and creamy with ripe red apple, pear, lemon curd, caramel, nutty and toasty flavours silky and long on the palate. Although the wine is unfined and unfiltered, it expresses itself elegantly. Chill and enjoy it with a lobster bisque.

Chardonnay food pairings: panko-crusted grilled chicken, salmon steaks, basil pesto, prawn bisque, cheese fondue.

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.
