Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Almost purple in color, this full bodied Australian Shiraz is bursting with rich flavors of mocha, blackberry, black cherry, blueberry pie, mint, black pepper and a lengthy chocolate cherry finish. Firm, well integrated tannins and nicely balanced. Ideal for richly coated BBQ ribs.
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This Shiraz has purple hues with aromas of dark fruit, mostly blackberry and plum. There’s also a bit of red berries, raspberries, and aromas of violet and of red licorice. On the palate, there are dark berries, mostly plums, pepper and a touch of cocoa. The tannins are medium, well integrated, and the wine has a nice acidity level.
Kilikanoon's The Lackey 2016 is a big red and robust toasty Shiraz from Australia. Well-priced below $20. This Shiraz is ripe blackberry and dark cherries on the palate and a perfect pairing with game meats or a rich roast leg of lamb. - 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.
