Natalie's Score: 91/100

A top-notch shiraz with aromas of fleshy blackberry and mint. Juicy, smooth and full-bodied. Very tasty. Perfect for hamburgers, pizza and steak. The grapes for this wine are grown in vineyards at an elevation of 480 metres above sea level which imparts great elegance and balance to this full-bodied red wine. Elegance meets decadence in the glass.

Shiraz food pairings: pizza, barbecued beef, pork, grilled or spice-rubbed chicken.

The vineyards for this wine are planted at one of the highest elevations in the Clare Valley at 480 metres above sea level which results in slow and complex ripening of the grapes. This wine has won several awards in international competitions. - Winery

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.
