Reviews and Ratings

Thelema Sutherland Mountain Vineyards (2012) Chardonnay is a clean, medium-bodied wine with ripe apple and creamy flavours. Aged on its lees in French oak barrels for 10 months, the wine is toasty with well-integrated oak but does not overpower it. This wine won a Gold Medal at International Wine Challenge, 2015. Pair with grilled fish. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
