Buttery and balanced Californian white wine, with full-bodied goodness. Nice price for classic Sonoma 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:

You might be hard pressed to find a California Chardonnay under $20 with this much complexity. This Chardonnay is rich and full on the nose and palate with a smooth buttery finish. The acidity is bright and balanced. There's a long lemon butter finish. Try this Sonoma lovely with all things seafood, white meats, creamy pasta dishes or on it's own. Solid price performer.
Tasted: May 2016
A robust Californian Chardonnay with notes of butterscotch, toasty oak and peach. Pair with seafood in a cream sauce. - 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.

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.
