Reviews and Ratings

Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

POW! I will preface this review first by saying "this is not a sipper." Deep opaque ruby in the glass lets the drinker know it's rich and full-bodied. Stewed dark fruit, mocha, vanilla, toasted oak, cake spice,clove, pepper, bakers chocolate. Wins marks for typical Aussie Shiraz. Youthful tannins need decanting. BBQ wine. Drink now.

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.
