Natalie's Score: 89/100

Vintages Wine Panel: This is a blend of Chardonnay and the native Portuguese variety Arinto, which adds fine acidity and a citrus quality to the wine. Crisp and refreshing, it features pineapple and lemon characteristics, as well as hints of floral, spice, and vanilla. My note: A zesty, balanced white that delivers grassy notes without needing to get out your lawnmower.

Arinto Chardonnay food pairings: grilled chicken, baked cod, turkey scallopini, rustic bread, poached salmon.

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.
