Reviews and Ratings

Lise Charest Gagne rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Aromas of buttery apples and peach hit you in the face on this lovely Chardonnay. Flavors of lemons and grapefruit, light spice and minerals linger in the mouth for quite a long time. The wine is bright but the acidity is balanced. I would enjoy this with some lemon hummus or a creamy white pasta sauce dish.
Tony rated this wine as 84/100
Love this Marborough Chardonnay from Spy Valley. The 2014 Chardonnay is a solid, well-structured Chardonnay and can handle roast chicken, buttered lobster and creamy pasta dishes. Ripe apple, white peach are on the nose and palate. Just and easy drinking and food wine all the way around. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
