Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Lovely balance, flavour, and intensity. Everything works so well together in this wine. Aromas of golden apple, pear, with a hint of warm spice, fresh bread, and vanilla. Medium bodied, smooth on the palate with medium acidty. Fruit flavours are luscious, ripe, and spicy, like an apple pie just before it goes in the oven. Enjoy with any chicken or turkey dish, or creamy pasta.
Deborah Podurgiel Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Sperling Vineyards Vision Series Chardonnay 2017 B.C. V.Q.A. is produced from 100% estate-grown organic grapes from younger vines. Grapes are hand-harvested, cluster-sorted and gently whole-cluster pressed. Fermented in 500 Litre French oak puncheons with malolactic fermentation. Select barrels are blended and bottled after 10-12 months of aging on lees and with some batonage.

Fragrant with honeysuckle, mineral and soft citrus aromas on the nose. Dry, medium-bodied, elegant and creamy on the palate with ripe yellow apple, vanilla pudding, soft orange flavours and a mineral backbone from beginning to end. Beautifully balanced, vibrant and mouth filling with a juicy, lengthy finish. Another Beautiful Chardonnay from Sperling Vineyards!

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.
