These 2007 merlots from Hawkes Bay are very good. This one is so fragrant there is almost a jujube quality to it, but let’s say red roses and red and black plums, with a hint of spice which is almost confused with ripe syrah. Palate is still firm, good plummy flavours, gentle oak, all in attractive balance and though not a low cropping rate, the wine is more substantial than many from Sileni. This is the best Triangle Merlot so far. Cellar 5 – 12 years. Source: Gordon Kendall, The Roanoke Times

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.
