Reviews and Ratings

Leafy, herbaceous notes on 11 give way to ripe blackcurrant fruit. Generously ripe & full. Over-delivers at price. Score: 3½ (out of 5). Source: Greg de Bruyn, Platter’s South African Wine Guide, 2013

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.
