Reviews and Ratings

Tim rated this wine as 1/100
Rockpile is a beast of a wine. Named in honour of the toughest vineyard we own, the Rockpile. The wine is grown entirely on
our Black Sage and Golden Mile vineyards. Syrah with Merlot,Cab Sauv, Cab Franc, etcetera with 1% Viognier for good
measure. Ratnip dirt and sand. Rich, spicy, meaty, fruity,earthy, and intriguing leathery notes.

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.
