Natalie's Score: 89/100

Lusciously big pineapple and tropical fruit notes on the nose of this Californian white wine, with a round, viscous mouth-filling texture and a toasty vanilla-caramel finish. Great price for big Californian Chardonnay. Pair with roast chicken or pasta in a cream sauce.

Chardonnay food pairings: pasta, hodge podge, lobster with mayonnaise, honey-garlic chicken, pork.

Remarkable Roast Chicken Wine

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A California Central Coast Chard with a delicious nose of citrus and tropical fruit and slight oak. The palate gives tropical banana, pineapple, citrus lime and oak. Well-balanced mouthfeel with good acidity and a long citrus tropical finish-everything you want in a Chardonnay!
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The California Central Coast AVA soaks up the long sunny days whilst enjoying the cooling effects of the Pacific breezes. Perfect for Chardonnay. This full-bodied Liberty School Chardonnay with medium acidity screams California. Rich and creamy with tropical, smoke, vanilla, butter aromas and flavours. Love the creamy butterscotch finish. Comes in under $20. Perfect timing for all the lobster festivals this time of year.
Tasted: June 2015

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

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.
