Jon Steeves rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Beautiful, bright, brilliant and approachable. This medium plus bodied beauty is ready for enjoying. Toasted almond, vanilla bean, freshly sliced green apple. Paired well with sea food chowder. Medium acidity, medium fruit. Persistence of green apple. Tasted 2015 vintage in October 2017. 89 points. Good value.
Heather Wall rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A full-bodied Argentine Chardonnay crafted with a gentle use of oak. Rich and creamy with an abundance of tropical fruit, lemon, warm baking spices, toffee and toast. A lovely lingering vanilla toast finish. Perfect for pork chops with applesauce.
Tasted: April 2017
Jane Staples rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

From Uco Valley in Mendoza, Argentina, this aromatic Chard offers light tropical guava, passionfruit and butterscotch aromas. Tropical ripe pineapple, guava, lemon, buttery caramel and coconut dance on the palate. There's good acidity and a lingering lemon/coconut finish. Serve with roast chicken or grilled scallops.
Tasted April 2017

Natalie's Review

Trapiche Finca Las Palmas Chardonnay 2015, Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina: Rich, round and luscious Chardonnay with terrific balancing acidity for roast chicken. A supple, full-bodied Argentine Chardonnay offering remarkable value and quality for this price point. Aromas of butterscotch and toasty oak with fleshy ripe pear and peach notes. Match this with roasted chicken. Drink: 2017-2019. 355610 13.50% XD 750 mL  $16.95 Score: 90/100. April 24, 2017 Sensational Shellfish Wine  Full Review

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.
