Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

An easy going Shiraz from the Niagara Peninsula. Magnotta's Limited Edition Shiraz shows dark fruits, cedar, spice, and toast on the nose and palate. Enjoy with flank steak, beef fajitas, or simply after a hard day's work. Tasted January 2016. 87 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Nick Onischuk - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

The Magnotta Winery Limited Edition Shiraz 2013 features dark berry fruit, plum and slight chocolate notes. Tasted January 31, 2016 (87/100)
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Deep garnet with aromas of plums, spice, and cedar. Medium acidity with a soft mouth feel and prominent spicy plum flavours. A very nice burger wine, or perhaps with mildly spicy sausages.
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Ripe dark fruit and subtle spices show on this dry Ontario Shiraz. A bit flabby, lacks zip for a Shiraz.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

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.

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.
