Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A nice balance of cherry and smoky notes on the nose, which also carry through to the palate. This wine has gone through malolactic fermentation, helping to contribute to its smooth texture, but there is still enough acidity to provide contrast and balance. Enjoy this wine with grilled pork tenderloin, or mushroom dishes.
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier reviewed this wine as follows:

Inviting cherry, smoked cedar and savoury notes. Juicy high acidity and an incredibly versatile pairing with meat and vegetarian-based dishes. I imagine it’s terrific with Pasta Bolognese. Tasted June 2018 by @sommsosa.

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.
