Reviews and Ratings

Lots of deep throated flavours of black raspberry and cranberry on the nose and palate of this robust rosado, Spain’s rosé wine. Finishes with notes of blood orange and mixed spice. Pair with grilled chicken. MINE: Ernest Hemingway loved Spain for the bullfights, the countryside and the rosado, Spain’s rosé. The 2015 vintage of Baron de Ley from Rioja is fresh strawberry and spice on the nose and palate. Have it with Spanish tapas and The Old Man and the Sea. OTHER: A blend of Tempranillo and Garnacha - the backbone of Rioja's great red wines - this rosé has
echoes of the depth, structure and weight you would expect of the wines from here. Smooth and textured with impressive and intense fruit-forward strawberry tones plus a savory herbal note. More extracted than rosés crafted in a Provençal style, for example, this will be great with grilled red peppers and has the stuff to stand up to grilled pork or lamb kebabs. (Vintages panel, May 2017). - 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.
