Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Full bodied, lots of caramel, toffee and warm baked apples. More peach, pear, and buttery notes on the palate. Great roast chicken wine but would also be great with scallops or seafood pasta with a cream sauce.
Sharon Prionas rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Aromas of golden delicious apple and buttery on the palette with tropical (pineapple) flavours. I'd pair with a buttery or white cream pasta dish.

Tasted March 11, 2018
Santa Ema Gran Reserva 2016 is a full-bodied, lush Chardonnay with grapes sourced from the Leyda Valley in Chile. There is a balanced acidity on this wine with ripe apple and pear flavours 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.

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.
