Buttery and balanced white wine, with full-bodied goodness. Nice price for classic Californian chardonnay. Aromas of fleshy white peach and toasty oak. Finishes nicely with ripe apricot and butterscotch. Try this chard with roast turkey.

Chardonnay food pairings: grilled pork chops, stuffed chicken breast, beef bourguignon, cheese.

Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The colour of California sunshine. Deep lemon with some slow moving legs in the glass. Citrus, golden apple, banana bread, nutty, floral, vanilla. Good acidity balances the viscosity. Very nice creamy finish. Excellent turkey with stuffing wine. Also, grilled salmon, creamy cheeses.
Tasted: December 2014

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.
