Reviews and Ratings

An exceptional value from Argentina’s leading producer. Bursting with coconut oil, banana, peach cobbler, buttered toast and hazelnut. It’s dry with a medium-full body and a nice balance of ripe fruit and toasty notes. Lovely roasted hazelnut persists on the finish. Source: Vintages Wine Catalogue.

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.
