Reviews and Ratings

Produced by Villa Maria, Taylors Pass is a single-vineyard 2015 Chardonnay. On the palate look for ripe golden apple, almond nut, smoke and toast from oak treatment. Drink now and for the next five years. - 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.
