Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Lovely! Aromas of sweet raisin, currant, honey, roasted almond and some warm spice. Full bodied and luscious on the palate, with sweet. honey, and nutty flavours, and a soft finish balanced with lovely fruit and again a bit of a spicy hint. Enjoy with an after dinner cheese plate.
L.J. Palmer rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This wine has intense berry flavours, in particular jammy strawberry and blueberry as well as sweet, intense cooked raisin and a spicy almost peppery note. This wine needs to be at 16 degrees C to unveil its complex flavours; if it is too cold the berry flavours are hidden. This wine needs a food partner that complements it to truly shine; think rich dark chocolate and berry centred desserts to pull out and complement the wonderful berry flavours. Pairings with salty foods, like mature cheeses, where the salt content is concentrated as the cheeses ages, will enhance both the flavours of the wine and food. It pairs beautifully with chocolate truffles, chocolate based desserts with "berry jam" like chocolate lava cake with raspberry or strawberry sauce and salty foods like Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese.

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.
