Natalie's Score: 90/100

Full-bodied and juicy with black fruit aromas and a pleasant herbal note. Smooth texture on this organic wine. The grapes for this wine come from the Colchagua Valley, and there's a splash of syrah in the blend. An excellent price for a wine to wake up your taste buds.

Carmenere food pairings: pizza, hamburgers.

Outstanding Organic Wine

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

A rich blend of 85% Carmenère, 8% Syrah, 4% Cabernet Franc and 3% Merlot. The grapes for this wine are hand picked, and following fermentation it is aged in French oak for six months. This will enrich the Chilean Carmenère's concentrated black fruit and spice with a touch of mocha/chocolate. Natura's wines are also noted for their great structure and balance.

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.
