Natalie's Score: 93/100

This could be the ultimate hamburger wine! Full-bodied, generous, juicy and crowd-pleasing: it's ready to get on the table beside all the fixins. Suffused with black fruit, pepper and dark spice, this is a wine that is as essential as mustard and ketchup with hamburger feast.

Shiraz Viognier food pairings: seafood, steak, Bouillabaisse, onion dip, hamburgers.

Reviews and Ratings

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Balanced aromas of black raspberry, ripe plums and blueberries, and baking spices. This wine even smells silky. The taste is juicy versions of the aromas, and the silkiness is very nice. It wraps up with a long tart black raspberry finish. A great roast beef wine, or one to sip all evening.
The label features a photo of my father Oscar Zimmerman and his brother seated under an apple tree, which still stands today, after a hard day's picking in what is now the Semaphore Block vineyard. They planted Shiraz vines in the Barossa Valley during the 1930s. - 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.
