Reviews and Ratings

Julia Kelada rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Let's talk about a wine with attitude!

Usually when I open a bottle of wine I actually like to take a sip almost straight away, although it needs to breath there's something so curious in my nature that it drives me impatiently to take a taste! All wines change after an initial opening period, but I have never noticed such a change as with this incredible chameleon of a wine.

Upon the first sip it was apparent that it was a floral wine, slight notes of blackberries and with a subtle tartness to it. Within 10 minutes of opening there was a pleasant acidity almost like balsamic vinegar with an enhanced fruit and oak barel finish. By now, this wine was really starting to embrace the air, the more it breathed, the less brash it became and it took on a different more refined personality. After half an hour, this wine had become much more subtle and it would be delicious with distinctive cheeses.

For an evening meal, this wine would sing to accompany a meal that had a punchy chorizo or a smoked paprika tomatoe chicken, infact.....let's simply say garlic....yum!

Bottoms up!!

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.
