Natalie's Score: 93/100

Oscar's full-bodied Shiraz-Viognier red wine blend is a whack of black raspberry, dark fleshy plum, spice and smoky Madagascar vanilla flavours on the palate. Intense, smooth and delicious from the Barossa Valley. The label features a photo of 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. Pair with bison burgers.

Shiraz Viognier food pairings: lamb shanks in red wine and roasted garlic, grilled lamb lollipops, stuffed lamb tenderloin.

From the Barossa Valley, South Australia, the ultimate burger wine, a rich and full-bodied mouthful of black raspberry, dark spice, mint and vanilla smoky flavours 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.
