Reviews and Ratings
|Malcolm Lamont - WSET Adv, CSW rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Strong aromas jump out of the glass, with jammy fruit, prunes, cedar, and a hint of alcohol coming through. Similar flavours on the palate, with a voluptuous mouthfeel. Full bodied, and medium to high acidity, this shiraz fares well, though it is not as well developed as many of its Australian counterparts.
|Darlene Myers - CAPS Student rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
This is a fun, and easy Shiraz to drink. It's one of best friend's favorite, so I have it quite frequently. I like it by itself and it goes quite well with food, especially meats. I always smell a wine before I drink it. I get great pleasure from the aromas of a wine. The nose and the palate matched. Blackberry, licorice and and vanilla is what stands out for me. It's good value - here in Nova Scotia it sells for $15.99 so its a nice Shiraz for good value. Enjoy
|Drink Wine and Giggle Gals rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
The Drink Wine and Giggle Gals could not believe Fat Bastard is a French wine, thinking mistakenly that it was an American creation inspired by Skinny Bitch. In a sense Fat Bastard is an American creation because America is responsible for the wine's success. Business Week called Fat Bastard a marketing phenomenon, a deliberately accessible French wine that is more Monty Python than Cotes du Rhone. The Drink Wine and Giggle Gals just call it phat...(but this is a wine packaged as an insult that we would not dare to gift).
