Reviews and Ratings

Fav Wines rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

An Austrailian Shiraz that does not disappoint! The legs of this wine are very noticeable. Hints of smoke, cherry and coffee were quite evident in my tasting of this winner from Nugan Estate. If shiraz is your grape you will love this one! Cheers!
Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

The 2012 Nugan Estate Alfredo Second Pass Shiraz, was pressed onto the pomace & lees of “Alfredo” grape Shiraz after fermentation and then matured in French and American Oak for 12 months, has rich notes of blackberry, vanilla and wood on the nose and black cherry, blackberry, prune and light vanilla on the palate. It is a medium bodied, dry, fruity wine; with checked acidity, refined tannins (decant for 15+ min) and a long, lightly metallic finish. This is a food friendly or party favourite wine; drink now and for the next 2-3 years (screw cap enclosure). Rated 87 pts. Tasted in Jul/14.

Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

Colour: Dense garnet in colour with a crimson hue. Bouquet: Lifted aromas of poached raspberry cherry entwined with a hint of tobacco, dark chocolate, smoke, vanilla earth. Palate: Ripe flavours of raspberry blueberries are followed by earthy tones, dark chocolate plush tannins.

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.
