Reviews and Ratings

Where’s the beef? As barbecue season swings into action, this is a perfect wine to have on hand. Wonderfully complex Malbec at a great price. Dense inky-black colour with dark plum, black cherry, smoked meat, cola and vanilla painting a vivid picture. Lovely soft texture, with round edges and generous fruit, and enough tannic grip to enhance steaks hot off the grill. Source: Vintages Wine Panel

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.
