Reviews and Ratings

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

A rich, succulent California chard, giving aromas and flavours of peach, green apple, slight citrus and vanilla in a creamy, luscious texture. Very elegant and good to the last drop! A great Mother's Day gift.
Tasted May 2018
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This well-balanced California Chardonnay features notes of: poached pears, baked cinnamon apples, light citrus, apricots, toasty oak, tropical banana and a faint hint toffee. There’s also a mild, unique hint of spice happening in the background. Acidity is well balanced with a creamy mouthfeel and finish. Enjoyable on its own but will also pair exquisitely with garlic buttered shrimp and scallops. 90 points - tasted May 2018
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lovely! Aromas of pear, apple, and warm spices. Luscious and buttery, but still balanced with some medium acidity, and nice bright fruit. Very versatile! Enjoy as a patio sipper, scallops, shrimp, roasted herbed chicken or roasted vegetables.
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Rich and round Chardonnay, presenting notes of ripe peach, green apple and subtle notes of rosemary. Would pair well with Rosemary chicken. Tasted May 06, 2018.
Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Crisp apple aromas and flavors with some butter vanilla notes on the palate. Pair with roasted chicken. Tasted May 2018.
Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted April 13th 2018. Colour light to medium gold, clear. Legs medium. Aromas and flavours of baked apple and pear, vanilla and hint of oak. Taste, dry, medium mouthfeel, mouthwatering minus, buttery, short finish. This Chardonnay reflects the land where it is grown. Easy drinking pair with buttery dishes. I had butter pan fried salmon and shrimp with Jasmine rice and roast rich heirloom carrots. My meal tasted better with the wine then without. Certainly good value. Everyday food wine.
This dry and medium-bodied, Californian Chardonnay is fantastic value under $20. Tom Gore 2015 is floral on the nose with tropical fruit flavours, toffee and spice on the palate. This is a well-balanced Chardonnay and perfect pairing to a roast chicken dish. - Community Wine Reviews
