Reviews and Ratings

Wineboy rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

lighter rose with bright fruit from some crisp dryness. Nice flavours, nice aromas. Nice wine
Full-bodied Australian rose with lots of acidity. Raspberry aromas and lots of spice. Pair with cold cuts. MINE: The grapes for this Australian rose come from a Single Site. Very spicy and medium-bodied. The Scarlet Ladybird refers to the Ladybugs that prey on vineyard pests like aphids. The vineyards are scattered throughout the Fleurieu Peninsula and grapes are selected from small parcels for the ultimate in prettiness and punch as the back label says. OTHER: Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review: A summery bright coral in the glass with strawberry aromas. The palate echoes ripe wild strawberries and watermelon with nice acidity that ties it together. Tasted April 2016. OTHER: This wine's name is a tribute to the ladybugs that eat aphids and other micro-pests in the vineyard. The wine itself is made from 65% Cabernet Sauvignon and 35% Grenache. The producer suggests pairing it with Asian cuisine, or dishes with a hint of chilli or lemongrass. OTHER: Light nose and light to start but flavours come in as it travels and they mingle and build to a welldefined dry rosé. Score - 92 (Tony Keys, thekeyreport.com.au, Jan. 26, 2017). - Community Wine Reviews

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.
