Natalie's Score: 92/100

A full-bodied Australian red wine blend of traditional Rhone varieties: Shiraz (about 90%) and Mourvèdre (about 10%) grapes with terrific structure and depth. Judicious use of oak wraps around blackberries and some dark spice notes. The wine was aged in second use American oak barrels. A pleasantly long, dry finish. Another classic red from Australia. Perfect for grilled meats: smooth yet robust. Finishes with dark fruits, pepper and spice. Pair with braised meats or stew.

Shiraz Mataro food pairings: veal, roast chicken, venison stew.

Opaque dark garnet with aromas and flavours of ripe blackberry, dried herbs, licorice and subtle oak. Dry, elegant and smooth, with a lingering finish.
Tasted Jan. 2017
South Australia Penfolds Bin 2 (2014) is a deep, dark red wine blend of 90% Shiraz and 10% Mourvèdre/Mataro. There is a lot of depth, structure on this meaty wine Finished long with dark plum, berries, liquorice and white pepper. Bring on the grilled beef ribs please! - 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.

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.
