Rich nose of honey, butterscotch . Complex integrated tree fruit and lemon. Palate is equally rich with complexity, white tree fruit, honey. Long finish. Delicious.
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Great complexity, tasty, mouthwatering medium plus acidity. Balanced, integrating well. Hazelnut, ripe russet apple, vanilla bean, savoury. Pairs well with roast poultry, roast pork with apple sauce. Tasted 2014 vintage in November 2018. 92 points. #GoodValue
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Pear aromas and flavors with some toffee notes on the palate. Finishes with a nice merging of flavors. Tasted November 2018.
Greg Hughes rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

B.C. Chard from Noble Ridge (near the Oliver area). A full bodied white, with almost 15% alcohol.
A bit of age on it already. It is a pale straw-yellow.
The aromas change a lot in the glass. Pineapple, arrowroot, ginger, vanilla, and zesty citrus.
Full bodied, but still has some pep. Good acidity keeps it alive and it is still decently fresh on the fruit flavours. Pineapple, lemon, zest, and some nuttiness.
Pair with beer can chicken and root veggies done in duck fat.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lemon curd, pomelo citrus, and a light hint of waxy lanolin. Flavours are very full revealing toast, orange peel and dried herbs. Chewy, nutty and full with definite toasted oak touches. Pair with roasted chestnuts and smoked meat sandwiches. - 90 points tasted November 2018
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Big, bold and spicy. This Noble Ridge Chardonnay shows intense baked apple and sweet baking spice aromas and ripe stone fruit, vanilla, butterscotch flavours with a long sweet spice finish. As noted, it's a bold one! It's full-bodied with a rich, ripe and spicy mouthfeel on the palate. Try with roasted turkey. Tasted Nov. '18 by @sommsosa.
Kristin Perrin rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Nose: baked apples, pears, brioche, nutmeg, varnish
Palate: Creamy baked pear in puff pastry, baked apples, sweet baking spices, butterscotch, vanilla, full body
Pair with: aged cheddars, Brie, appley or stone fruit chutneys
