Natalie's Score: 88/100

A terrific, full-bodied red with mouth-watering savoury notes that make it extra food-friendly, especially with hearty dishes and tomato sauces. A black-cherry-infused finish. Gets my vote!

Shiraz Sangiovese food pairings: pan-fried veal cutlets with oven roasted beets, kipfler potatoes, and whole shallots with mushroom and gardlic reduction.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

Jason Solanki rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

2008 vintage. Aromas of plum, raisin, currant, oak, sour cherry with nuances of mint. Plum, fruit forward with ripe fruit on the palate. Ripe tannins for drinking now. I would serve this slightly chilled. Tasted May/2012.
The 2008 Butcher’s Gold Shiraz Sangiovese is
sourced from premium vineyards in South Australia. The winemaking process highlights the vineyard qualities of these two great varieties, with the Shiraz offering dense, sweet fruit and the Sangiovese delivering savoury, rustic tannins and a dark cherry
fruit flavour.
Bouquet
Fresh, lifted characters of dark plum and black cherry dominate the aromas of this wine. Underlying hints of red fruits and ground aniseed add intrigue to the nose with supporting oak spice.
Palate
The palate displays bright, expressive fruit flavour of dark cherry and summer berry fruits. Vibrant, juicy fruit is complemented by a layered savoury tannin structure and juicy, mouth-watering acid finish,leading to a long and textured finish.

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.
