Reviews and Ratings

Described by one judge as a “blockbuster sav”, this is certainly a powerful wine with gooseberries and thistles on the nose and big ripe tropical – particularly lime – flavours in the palate and linger and linger on the palate. High class wine. Score: 4½ (out of 5) Source: tizwine.com

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.

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.
