Reviews and Ratings

This wine is truly our flagship Chardonnay. The 2010 vintage was hot, and resulted in exceptional ripeness. This wine was fermented and aged in 100% French Oak barriques. A year in barrel was followed by a six months in stainless steel before bottling. While exhibiting the typical character of the vineyard, this wine does reflect the warm vintage. The characteristic aromas of citrus and ripe apple are wrapped with hints of stone fruit and tropical fruit. The French oak and detectable minerality complete the beautifully layered nose. On the palate, the wine generously fulfills the promise of the nose, delivering ripe citrus and apple, with nuances of peach, and pineapple flavors. Great structure, with a rich, full, and slightly creamy mouth feel. A wonderful, lingering finish completes the experience!

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.
