Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Totally delightful Chard entirely grown and produced using organic and biodynamic winemaking methods. Inviting aromas of tropical fruit and butterscotch, with beautifully balanced tropical guava, ripe pineapple, slight citrus, vanilla, butterscotch and slightest oak. Full-bodied and has just the right acidity, with a long buttered fruit finish. A beauty!

Enjoyed the citrus and apples aromas with hints of biscuits and baking spice. Flavours were well integrated and nice finish

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.
