Natalie's Score: 87/100

Fantastic value, quality and taste for the money! One of the most consistently good producers from South Africa. Terrific note of lime zest and chives, not too herbal. Mouth-watering and tasty.

Sauvignon Blanc food pairings: Enjoy with seafood, salmon, roast chicken and pork. This wine can stand up to a bit of heat as well..

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.
