Natalie's Score: 90/100

Wakefield Estate Label 2021 Chardonnay is a great value, cool-climate Clare Valley Estate Chard under $17. Juicy and creamy with ripe peach, tropical fruit, citrus zest and toasty, spicy flavours balanced with fresh acidity on the palate. A portion of the grapes for this Chardonnay were barrel-fermented and the wine was matured for eight months in French oak barrels. Food versatile, the wine is a perfect foil for sauteed scallops in a lemon butter sauce. This vintage was awarded Double Gold at the 2022 China Wine & Spirits Awards.

Chardonnay food pairings: turkey burgers, crab cakes, chicken breast, lobster in butter sauce, cheese.

Terrific Turkey Wine

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.

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.
