Natalie's Score: 89/100

Love this butter-rich Californian Chard from the cool climate Monterey wine region -- one of the coolest wine grape growing regions in California. Still that wonderful toffee and caramel on the nose, dry, medium-plus-bodied with ripe apples, stone fruit, vanilla and toast oak flavours on the palate on this consistently well-made Chardonnay. The vintage was awarded Silver at the 2018 International Wine & Spirit Competition. Noble Vines 446 is named for the vine stock 4, which is now planted in the winery's block 46 vineyard and other sites in San Bernabe. Chill and enjoy with roast chicken.

Chardonnay food pairings: roast chicken, seafood alfredo, pork tenderloin with peach, apricot compote.

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.
