Reviews and Ratings

Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

The 2012 Hardys Chronicles Butchers Gold Shiraz Sangiovese, in 80%/20% proportions, has appealing aromas of stems, lees, baked raspberry and blackberry and a faint burnt match note. It is a full bodied, extra-dry, fruity wine; with forward acidity, refined, dusty tannins and a medium finish. Drink with food; drink now – 2018. My impression: NICE, 88 pst. Tasted at Australia Today 2014 Trade show http://grapeselections.com/australian-wine/ in Feb/14.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

An expressive wine displaying the sweet dense fruit of Shiraz melded with the savoury rustic tannins and bright cherry of Sangiovese all leading to a long finish.

Un vin expressif qui démontre les fruits denses du Shiraz fusionnés avec les tannins savoureux et rustiques et les cerises brillantes du Sangiovese pour mener au fini prolongé.

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.

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.
