Natalie's Score: 88/100

A full-bodied red with lusciously rich black plum aromas and flavours. A pleasantly bitter finish that refreshes your palate for the next bite of food.

Malbec food pairings: peppercorn steaks, grilled portobello mushrooms.

This is the debut vintage of The Seeker Malbec. The Seeker is a series that interprets benchmark wines from all over the world, wherever a place and grape have an indelible link – in this case, Argentina and Malbec. Deep purple, with suggestions of blackberry, smoked meat, vanilla, and spices. It’s full bodied and packed with ripe black fruit, hints of chocolate, vanilla and peppery spices all supported by plush fine tannins. An interesting and tasty introduction to Malbec. You should seek out this wine as a match for barbecued foods. 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.
