Natalie's Score: 89/100

Rounded, delicious and sumptuous! Sink your teeth and hedonistic heart into this South African red wine. Lovely aromas of blackberry, cassis, spice, and plum. Ripe black plum and toasty oak. Yum. Bring it on! Decant for 1-2 hours and pair with hearty meat dishes.

Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz Pinotage food pairings: barbecued ribs, hamburgers, chicken wings.

Reviews and Ratings

This big red wine is a blend of 35% cabernet sauvignon, 33% shiraz, 32% pinotage, and it aged in oak for 18 months. Gerhard Swart, winemaker, has delivered a terrific South African red wine blend of the money! - 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.
