Reviews and Ratings

Deep ruby hue with violet accents on the nose of this fabulous Australian red wine. Classic Cabernet nose of blackcurrant, cassis and sage brush on this Australian red wine. Full-bodied and very solidly structured. Packed with dark fruit personality and flavour. Finishes with oak spice and dried herbs. Decant 2 hours for maximum pleasure. Great for steak. This voluptuous Australian red wine would also pair well with other fine cuts of meat. MINE: The Cabernet grapes for the 2013 vintage of this full-bodied Australian red wine was open-fermented and basket-pressed. The wine was then aged for 20 months in French hogshead oak barrels, of which 23% was new. Great cellar wine. OTHER: A sense of place indeed, communicated by the first whiff of the bouquet, cigar box and dark chocolate close behind cassis fruit; the medium to full-bodied palate brings the expected tannins into play, oak of textural, as much as flavour, importance in a notably well balanced wine. Drink By: 2029. Special Value. Score - 94 (James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au, Jan. 20, 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.
