Reviews and Ratings

Julia Kelada rated this wine as 98/100 with the following review:

What a glorious, glorious wine! 
As I poured it into the glass it was like pouring a glass of cherry nectar, though do not let this cloud your judgement.
On the nose there are cherries, cooked plums and a curiously delicious essence of caramel apples followed by a herby bay presence.
On the palate...oh wow! Let's just say that this is a wine that you could enjoy to drink by itself or with a meal. This is a wine that you could start your evening with and progress through your wine choice. 
On the palate there is a wonderful rounded velvety start with fresh acidity. There is an abundance of fresh cherries and raspberries and I discovered yellow plums. There was an amazing earthy presence, the taste was like the energy of fresh rainfall on the forrest floor when you can almost taste the fresh wood on your taste buds. The tannins to this wine are perfect, lengthy and dry without being overbearing!

An astonishing wine and worth every penny. Give this a go, you will not be dissapointed.

Bottoms up!

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.
