Reviews and Ratings

A pretty wine ... On the palate it was well balanced. The acid and the tannin were in check with the amount of fruit. A very long finish. It seemed to do extremely well with food. This smoky, rich, meaty taste developed and extended the finish on the wine making it even longer and more savoury. It was one of my favourite matches of the entire competition.

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.
