Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

The iconic Canadian band, The Tragically Hip, teamed up with Stoney Ridge head winemaker Jeff Hundertmark to produce a premium Ontario cool-climate Chardonnay worthy of carrying the bands name and legendary song title "Ahead by a Century". Ahead by a Century Chardonnay is a pale gold with wild flower honey, pineapple, honeydew melon, sweet corn, almonds, and biscuit on the nose and palate. It's medium bodied with great balance of creamy mouthfeel with refreshing acidity leading to a spicy orchard fruit finish. Enjoy this refreshing cool-climate Chardonnay with crab cakes, roasted poultry, or seared Mahi Mahi with zesty basil butter. Pre-order your bottles winery-direct and receive them in time for holiday gifting to all those Hip fans in your life. Tasted November 2016. 89+ points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
From Ontario's Niagara Peninsula and wine growing region, The Tragically Hip, Ahead By A Century (2014) Chardonnay was introduced in 2016 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Hip's classic album Trouble at the Henhouse. - 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.

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.
