Reviews and Ratings

Fleshy ripe and sweet blackberry and menthol on the nose and palate of this gorgeous, plump Australian red wine that's a blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Shiraz and 5% Mataro grapes. Supple, smooth and full-bodied. Pai with roast beef, of course. MINE: Sister's Run Cow's Corner (2016) is a rich red blend of 80% Grenache, 15% Shiraz and 5% Mataro (Mourvèdre). This robust and dry GSM from the Barossa wine region is smoky cherries, blackberries and so luxurious on the palate. The "cow' corner" is an area of a cricket field with respect to the batsman in cricket and is always deep in the field on the batsman's leg side where the 'cow shots' are intended to go. Cow shots are wild and risky cricket shots considered to be mostly played by novice players without the knowledge of the difficult techniques of the game. OTHER: Wineboy rated this wine as 79/100 with the following review: Hmmm.... for the adventurous wine drinker. Loads of earthy leather and raisin aromas and flavours. Not for a crowd but with Lamb (and an open mind) - yum. OTHER: The Decanter World Wine Awards 2018 awarded this wine 88 points: "80% Grenache, 15% Shiraz, 5% Mataro. Medicinal clove, star anise and spicy strawberry aromas. Sweet red fruit, ginger tea, cinnamon, oak notes." OTHER: [The San Diego International Wine & Spirits Challenge did not include a tasting note.] Score - 90 (San Diego International Wine & Spirits Challenge, 2018). - 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.
