Yum smooth buttery
Karen Anderson rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

I went to the winery looking for their Viognier but it was sold out. I was disappointed but when they asked Would I like to try the Chardonnay? I quickly gained some mental flexibility and answered YES. Holy serendipity. Yum. Elegant touch of oak yielding mild butterscotch and apricot notes. I'll be enjoying this with my turkey today but also had it with seared curried scallops on a bed of creamed leeks and it married well. I love this winery.
BC Grape Gal rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

We adore this complex & beautifully balanced Chard!
Fragrant tropical fruit and peach notes are achieved through the use of a combination of
50% French Oak and 50% stainless steel fermentation.
The Oak is delicate enough to truly let the fruit shine,
“Peaches & Cream” describe this wine perfectly!

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.
