Reviews and Ratings

Brampton 2016 is a great value under $20 Sauvignon Blanc from the Western Cape wine region. This vibrant white is fresh, zesty with light herbs and tropical fruit flavours on the palate. The 2016 growing season was one of the hottest and driest in nearly 30 years and led to an earlier than-typical harvest. Grapes for this SB were hand-harvested in the cool of the morning to preserve grape freshness and flavour integrity. - 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.
