Reviews and Ratings

Travis Oke rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Long Flat Shiraz was our house wine (as in our home) for 2 years. Sweet and juicy enough for my wife's palate with enough tannic bite for mine it also pleased our budget. We kept a supply on hand always.
A best value wine from the LCBO
The best valued Shiraz on the market! Rich berry flavours with a smooth finish.
lovely wine with great depth of flavour. Delightful strawberry, vanilla, white pepper and spice aromas lead to berry fruit flavours
with a touch of lingering French oak on the palate. Soft tannins and balanced acid make this a medium to full bodied easy drinking wine.

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.
