Reviews and Ratings

One mark of a truly great producer is the ability to evoke the signature quality of their premium bottlings across their complete range. The Lackey is consistently one of Australia’s great-value buys, and this well-priced Shiraz from Kilikanoon offers a tantalizing hint of what can be expected from their more expensive offerings. Full bodied and approachable, with suggestions of rich blackberry, pepper, cedar and chocolate. Source: Vintages 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.
