Reviews and Ratings

From the Barossa, Elderton Command 2016 Shiraz is produced from a single vineyard with 120-year-old vines. Big and bold with a ton of ripe, tarry dark fruit, dark chocolate flavours, spicy and smoky with balanced acidity. Good now, but would benefit from a few years in cellar. Try in 2024. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
