Natalie's Score: 92/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Deep ruby colour with aromas of cherry pie, wet earth, new leather and smoked meat. Dry, ripe, sweetly fruity, but with a fine brush of tannin for structure. Medium-full bodied with a long, robust finish. Drink now to 2015. My note: A dependably delicious red. Rich, full-bodied and smooth with juicy flavours of black plums and blackberries. What more could you want?

Shiraz Grenache Mataro food pairings: lamb chops, veal medallions in a red wine sauce, pepper steak with sautéed mushrooms.

Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Pure blackberry and black cherry core. Seamless fruit with coffee and chocolate. The finish lasts for 30 seconds at least. Nice acidity to it, great GSM from the Barossa Valley. Two Hands overdelivers at nearly every price point. 90 Points. (ottawawinejournal.com)

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.
