Reviews and Ratings

Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Lovely red fruit aromas in this blend of Cabernet (60%) and Merlot (40%) - blackberry, cherry, vanilla, white pepper and mint on the well balanced palate. Lingering, lengthy spice on the finish.
Melanie Lloyd rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Aromas of raspberry jam and vanilla, followed by a touch of cedar and white pepper. You can taste the heat of South Africa with ripe berry flavours. The tannins are well structured. There's a slight bitter finish and good length on the palate. Tasted October 2017.
Stellenbosch Drive (2015) is a great value 60% Cabernet Sauvignon and 40% Merlot from the Stellenbosch wine region. Fruit is bright, fresh with cherry, vanilla and toasty notes on the palate. - 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.
