Jon Steeves rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A light bodied BC Chardonnay boasting brilliant ultra pale straw and an integrated 13% ABV. Quite floral aromatic dominance with medium ripe pear almost ripe green melon and elegant orange blossom. Short finish with persistence of geranium and pear. Tasted Jan 2017. Rated 88/100.
Monique Sosa rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Floral and stone fruit galore. A light+ bodied, fun and flavourful Chardonnay with lasting notes of white peach, melon and citrus peel. Enjoy with braised turkey sandwiches. Tasted Jan 2017 - @sommsosa / @tastingcru - bespoketastings.ca

Natalie's Review

The Hatch Screaming Frenzy Chardonnay 2015, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia BC VQA, Canada: A lovely BC white wine made from the classic Chardonnay grape. Rich and round, yet also fresh and vibrant with aromas of golden apple and a touch of vanilla. Screaming Frenzy is named for the Black Swift birds that mysteriously, and perhaps only once a year, congregate in the skies over the winery's vineyards. Pair with this roast chicken (or four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie). Drink: 2016-2018. 13.50% D 750 mL Score: 88/100. January 10, 2017  Full Review

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.
