Reviews and Ratings

Medium bodied but firm with a stream of lightly chalky tannins running through it. It’s a little meaty, with pepper spice and some mint sitting on top of boysenberry and plum fruit. Has something like malty Turkish dried apricot sweetness and subtle vanilla oak providing a bit of prettiness. And it’s a pretty serious wine for the price too, and one that’s sure to cellar pretty well. Score: 93 Source: Gary Walsh, winefront.com.au

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.
