Natalie's Score: 92/100

A savoury, meaty, full-on Australian red wine in all the best senses. Aromas of fleshy black fruit, cedar spice, woodsmoke and wild violets. Love the mouth-feel: generous, supple, liquid velvet.

Shiraz food pairings: beef stew with root vegetables, lamb cutlets with pepperade and goat cheese, hamburgers, pizza, black bean soup.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Nose of ripe red plums and spice. Palate of fruit, spice, vanilla. Smooth tannins. Aged 14 months in new French oak. Harmonious, long ripe plummy finish.
The evidence of Langhorne Creek's cool climate it ins the glass of this superbly balanced and flavourful Australian red wine. This Shiraz is aged for 14 months in French oak barrels. - 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.
