Natalie's Score: 91/100

A gloriously rich and full-bodied Australian Shiraz with aromas of black fruit, violets, toasty oak and dried herbs. Such a pleasant balance here with a naturally pleasing bite for food. Layered and complex and deep. Yes please! Pair with meat lovers' or pepperoni pizza.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Sean O'Regan Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Nov 16, 2014: Deep ruby, plummy, blackberry, black cherry, eucalyptus, dark chocolate and oak spice nose. Full bodied, plush, with currant, black cherry, eucalyptus, chocolate and spice. Medium acidity and drying tannins on the warm finish - a little brutish at %14.9 but the fruit keeps it in check. Drink until the end of the decade.
The robust Australian red wine is the winery's Cuvee Maitre (Founder's Blend or Reserve) and it shows in the glass. Dense flavours of blackberry and mulberry and dark spices. Try this big red with slow-roasted lamb shanks or braised beef with seasonal vegetables.

Red, White & Drunk all over by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean writes about wine with a sensuous obsession... and often laugh-out-loud funny... Terrific.

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.
