Reviews and Ratings

Michael David Freakshow 2016 is a monster 15% abv red blend of Syrah and Petite Sirah with ripe black plums, smoke, more dark plums, blackberry, mocha and toasty, smoky oak spice flavours huge and generous on the palate. Quite a big mouthful. Pair with a grilled Tomahawk steak. - 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.
