Reviews and Ratings

Oh yum. Comfort me with mourvèdre and other old bush vine grapes. Rich, complex and deep Australian red wine: exactly what you want in a partner (and in a wine). Full-bodied and smooth and inviting. The Schild family has been in the Barossa Valley for more than 60 years. Lots of complexity, depth and vibrancy in this richly rewarding wine. This is a blend of 45% Grenache, 28% Mourvèdre and 27% Shiraz grapes. Pair with brisket. MINE: Three generations of the Schild family have been making wine. This is the classic marriage of three iconic Australian grape varieties. Old Bush Grenache dominates the blend with ripe red berry fruit and dark spice and a velvet mouth-feel. Mourvèdre lends fleshy blueberry and pepper and Shiraz provides the structure and backbone or tannins. OTHER: Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review: Shows red/blue fruit on nose, with a palate of blueberry, spice and ripe plums. Juicy tannins and a mouth-watering-fruity finish. OTHER: It's important to get the temper right of these blends and this one does. It's not too sweet, not overoaked, not too alcoholic. And yet it's ripe and earthen and well-fruited. It flows, it's succulent, it's not simple, and it drinks like a charm. Drink By: 2022. Special Value. Score - 93 (Campbell Mattinson, winecompanion.com.au, March 1, 2017). - Community Wine Reviews

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.
