Reviews and Ratings

The Foreign Affair Dream 2017 is a supple and full-bodied Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot red wine blend with 15% of the grapes dried in appassimento style prior to fermentation. The final blend was aged in French, American and Hungarian oak barrels for 16 months. Love the rich, dark berry and plum aromas along with violet, cinnamon, cedar spice and vanilla. Dry, vibrant on the palate with blueberry, blackcurrant, plum, cocoa, and spicy flavours finishing long on the palate. Tannins are pleasantly grippy. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
