Reviews and Ratings

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Leading on the nose are ripe aromas of blackberry, black cherry, and plum, closely pursued by cocoa and a little smoke. This offering dials in on the fruit while maintaining a similar structural style to other quality offerings, namely a full body, robust tannins, and integrated acidity. Barrel aging shows nicely on the palate, adding more cocoa and smoke to the dark fruit medley that transitions into the finish. A bold and elegant offering with at least another half decade of prime drinking ahead. Enjoy with red meats, especially off the grill.
Rebecca Meir-Liebman - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

There is something rich yet elegant about this medium body Shiraz with flavours of mocha, spice and red fruit. It is well balanced with a fresh acidity on the finish and almost tastes closer to a Southern France Syrah as opposed to an Australian Shiraz. The texture is round and rich with ripe raspberries, but also an earthiness with wood characteristics due to a 12 month aging period in French and American oak barrels. A good wine for the price.
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A straightforward Shiraz with dark plum fruit on the nose and palate. Medium bodied. Medium plus finish. Try it with wood oven pizza. Tasted June 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
Cape Barren's Native Goose 2016 is a deep, dark red Shiraz with earthy, flinty and pepper spice aromas on the nose. Dry, with rich ripe cherry, black raspberry, cola and cocoa flavours on the palate. Youthful with a flinty, spicy finish. - 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.
