Gold Medal winner at Concours Mondial Bruxelles 2011. A blend of 55% Syrah, 25% Grenache and 20% vieilles vignes Carignan & Mourvèdre. Aromas of blackberry, blackcurrant, plum and smoke. The palate is a smooth and fruit-driven pleasure ride with a lovely savoury complexity. Very well made with superb balance and structure. Source: Vintages Wine Panel, Nov. 2012

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.
