Heather Wall rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Medium lemon colour with some viscosity showing on my glass. This full-body California Chardonnay is a tropical treat. Pineapple, banana, white blossoms up front with butter, stone fruit, toast, and popcorn. The palate is rich with some cleansing citrus and good acidity and decent lemon finish. A nice but not overly complex Chardonnay. Pair with favourite fish or seafood. Serve chilled.
Tasted: April 2015
Jane Staples rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This Sonoma County Chard from California has a nose with ripe pineapple and vanilla, followed by a palate showing ripe tropical notes, citrus lime, oak, vanilla and buttered toast. Well-integrated elements with a long citrus buttered toast finish.




Natalie's Review

Cannonball Chardonnay 2013, Sonoma County, California, United States: Lovely Californian Chardonnay! White floral notes, some baking spice and a lightness that's ethereal given the mouth-filling juiciness of this wine. Classic Sonoma Chardonnay from the Russian River Valley and Carneros sub-districts pulls out all the stops in this full-on white wine. Pair with veal chops.

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.
