Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This medium-bodied California Chardonnay is medium lemon in colour and medium acidity. Fresh, floral and creamy with pineapple, apple, vanilla, butter, and toast aromas and flavours. A lingering apple butter finish. Pleasant, not overly complicated. Enjoyable on it's own or with traditional Chardonnay pairings: planked salmon, roasted poultry, pork with applesauce, perogies.
Tasted: May 2015
The winery that produces this light Californian Chardonnay is Certified Sustainable, practising farming and winemaking methods that have a lower impact on the environment, though this doesn't necessarily mean that the wine is organic. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.

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.
