Reviews and Ratings

Chateau Tanunda was declared Australian Producer of the Year at the 2010 International Wine & Spirit Competition in London. Deep dark purple red, viscous and clingy in the glass. Comfiture of red fruits, strawberry jam, spiced coffee, broken stone and sandalwood aromas. Hugely concentrated fruits, black and red, spicy and jammy, cedary wood, olives and sweet prunes. This wine isn’t brash, but it is big, bold and very effective indeed. Score: Silver Medal (Best in Class) Source: International Wine & Spirit Competition

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
