Reviews and Ratings

Julia Kelada rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

To me this is the perfect party wine . Its full character can adapt to any array of party food thrown its way, pizza, chicken wings it can handle it!
On the nose there are red cherries, red jammy fruits and a great balance to the sweet fruits are notes of green leaves.
On the palate this is a wine that breathes to show case its red fruit. Lots of full ripe red cherries, then an abundance of flavour like a red berry pie. Notes of oak barrel and a warming leathery tone make way for decadent bitter chocolate. The tannins are velvety and there is black pepper spice on the finish. This fruity, dry wine is a great pairing for pizza of any style!
Bottoms up!

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.
