Reviews and Ratings

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

Inviting buttery, toasty nose leads into a tasty palate with lemon, green apple, butterscotch and oak. Full-bodied with ripe lemon on finish.
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This medium-bodied Niagara Chardonnay is rich with Niagara tree fruit, honey, tree blossoms, and notes of gentle oak aging. Medium(+) acidity is balanced and cleansing. Tasted: February 2016
This barrel-aged Niagara Chardonnay offers concentrated aromas of toasty oak, orchard fruit and spice. Lots of buttery richness on the palate. - 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.

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.
