Reviews and Ratings

rated this wine as 83/100 with the following review:

This is a nice wine: simple, not too complex, creamy on the palate with a focus on ripe tree fruit and a bit of lemon; well balanced for a wine that's 13.5 percent alcohol with a butterscotch tinged finish.
Uncompromising and innovative Stellar is South Africa’s largest producer of fine organic wines. This wine takes its name from the Indian Runner Ducks that patrol the vineyards, controlling pests such as snails. Aromas of ripe pear, apple, oak and lees, followed by a big, round, medium-full-bodied palate. Very consistent with the nose, with a dash of sweet oak showing through on the finish. An excellent value wine. This organic wine contains 23 mg/L of free sulphur. 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.
