Natalie's Score: 92/100

Savoury black fruit with a satisfying meaty note on the mid-palate. Cassis and blackberry tickle the senses and lead into a long smoky finish. Such great finesse and elegance in a wine known for being all upfront with fruit. Sample and see that winemaker Sue Hodder has a special kind of genius when it comes to cool-climate Australian red wines.

Courtney Flood rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Plum, blackberry, savory herb and pepper notes. The palate is very rich and mouthwatering, with a deep smokey finish. Would go well with a pot roast with wine sauce. Very lovely wine!
Eric rated this wine as 90/100
Doug Mcmillan rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Plum, blackberry, salty minerality, old leather, and a little spice. The taste is mostly plum and very smooth. There's medium acidity and a little soft tannin.
Sean O'Regan Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

August 17, 2014: Deep ruby/purple, plum, blackberry, black pepper, smoke and some green herb. Sweet, plummy, cassis, eucalyptus, fine tannins and medium acidity suggest drinking this wine over the next 2-3 years with grilled/braised beef and pork.
The estate was founded by John Riddoch who planted vineyards in 1896 and built the famous triple gabled winery. Source: Winery

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.
