Martha Kelly AIWS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Ripe and buttery, this full-bodied Chardonnay has flavours of apple, citrus, and tropical fruit with warming spice and smooth vanilla oak. The flavours linger on the warming refreshing finish.
Pair with melon and prosciutto, smoked salmon, or lobster.
Drink now or cellar until 2018.
Date tasted: November 2014.
Monique Sosa rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Intriguing pear, apple, honeydew melon and grassy notes with a buttery smooth mouthfeel. Medium bodied crisp refreshing white with medium-long finish. Hmmmm pair THIS one with seafood chowder or tomato based fish stews (cioppino).
Tom Vigeant reviewed this wine as follows:

Inviting pear and ripe Apple aromas. Medium body, well balanced acidity, pleasant citrus and orchard fruit finish. Well integrated oak. Well done for price point.
Astrid Young rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Complex aromas of devonshire cream, lemon curd and gooseberry jam, exotic tropical fruit and chammomile flowers, elegant balance and medium weight on the mid palate and a hint of sweet spring florals. All the delicate flavors return on the finish. Lobster please.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.

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.
