Reviews and Ratings

Craig Haynes WSET 3 for wine rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Crafted with naturally occurring yeasts selected from Southbrook's vineyard and winery, this delicious chardonnay shows fresh aromas of pear and red apple and a touch of minerality. Balanced and medium bodied with pleasing food friendly flavours of sweet spice, apple and pear.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Beautiful and balanced. Fermented with naturally occurring yeasts, aromas include lemon curd, golden apple, and some mineral and yeasty notes. Smooth on the palate, almost a hint of spice on the finish. Enjoy with chicken or rich, creamy pasta dishes.

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.
