Reviews and Ratings

Julian Park rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This Chardonnay is 100% barrel fermented and aged in French oak for 11 months, with only about 20% being new oak.

Intense aromas of honey, green apple, lime zest and citrus, rounded out with a light mineral note and hints of white blossoms and vanilla. On the palate, this medium-bodied wine delivers a gentle toastiness, flavours of butterscotch, Meyer lemon, cantaloupe and a soft voluptuous mouthfeel with a fresh but lingering finish.

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.
