Natalie's Score: 90/100

A medium-bodied, succulent Pinot Noir from the Wairarapa wine region with great acidity for food. Subtle with light cherry, strawberry and floral notes on the nose, fresh with ripe red cherry, subtle spice plushy on the palate. Tannins are velvety. Ready to enjoy now. Pair with grilled veal chops.

Pinot Noir food pairings: beef bourguignon, roast turkey, meat lover's pizza topped with more steak.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
