Blackberry liqueur richness with a hint of mint. Full-bodied and ultra-smooth. This is an incredible wine for the price.

Produced from the shiraz plantings on the 340-ha estate vineyards that date back to 1969, the wine has a strong, healthy colour, with a bouquet of black fruits, vanilla bean and touches of spice. Then follows a medium- to full-bodied, mouth-filling palate, with oceans of black fruits and well- integrated vanilla oak, promising much for the future. Drink it now or in 15 years – it’s up to you. Winner of a blue-gold medal at the Sydney International Winemakers Competition 2011. Score: 92 Source: James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au

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.
