Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A very nice cool climate unoaked Niagara Chardonnay. Crisp and clean acidity with with aromas and flavours of citrus zest, green apple, floral blossoms, minerality. Light-bodied and food friendly. Perfect alternative to heavily oaked Chards. Enjoy it on it's own or with planked salmon, cream cheese with lox, shellfish.
Tasted: June 2015
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

An unoaked Chardonnay from Niagara Peninsula, Ontario. The aromatic nose shows green apple and lime. A fresh, fruity palate gives tree fruit and lime, with bright acidity and a long tangy finish. If you love Chard but don't like a lot of oak, give this one a try
This unoaked Niagara Chardonnay was fermented in stainless steel tanks and aims to be like Chablis, the northern French region in Burgundy that also doesn't apply oak to its Chardonnay wines. - 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.
