Reviews and Ratings

Barista 2018 is a great value Pinotage from the Robertson wine region in South Africa. As you can guess, this supple South African red wine features coffee espresso on the nose and palate from the toasty oak aging. Lovely smoky richness and layering of black cherry, ripe cassis and dark chocolate flavours to go along with this full-bodied red that has been Certified for Integrity & Sustainability by the South African Wine and Spirit Board. Winemaker Bertus Fourie, who holds degrees in microbiology, chemistry and oenology, is nicknamed "Starbucks" for his role in shaping the so-called "coffee Pinotage" style. Pair with game charcuterie and aged cheese board. - 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.
