Natalie's Score: 89/100

Outstanding wine for the money! Cassis and cedar with full-bodied richness. This wine is named after the river that divides it in half. The region of Aconcagua in Chile is extremely hot and dry, ideal for ripening rich, full-bodied red wines. It's supple and layered on the palate, like liquid velvet. I'd drink this wine with hearty meat dishes.

Carmenere food pairings: pork tenderloin.

As one of Chile’s hottest and driest regions, Aconcagua has a well earned reputation for producing superb red wines. Nice concentration of aromas and flavours here, with lots of red berry and earthy tones. The finish is quite long and spicy with a nice apple-cider composition.

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.
