Reviews and Ratings

The Ultra Malbec is a suitably big and delicious wine. Dense and intense on the nose, with dark chocolate, ripe plush black fruit, minerality, cedar and spice. The palate is dry, concentrated and balanced with more dense black fruit and cedar, with coffee, spice, and mineral through the long finish. A crowd-pleasing and elegant wine, with great personality and character. Source: Vintages Wine Panel

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.
