Natalie's Score: 92/100

This towering, blockbuster Australian red wine from Walter Clappis Wine Co. delivers! Down Under intensity and concentration of flavour. Savory, meaty and juicy with luscious layers of black fruit. This is a big-boned wine, yet balanced. Love the replays of fleshy blackberries and plums across the palate. Signature McLaren Vale Shiraz with smoky, toasty oak and charred black plums in an attractive way.

Shiraz food pairings: bison steak, grilled cheese sandwich, chicken marsala, Mexican dishes, tandoori flavored dishes.

Reviews and Ratings

Increasing pleasure and reducing pain is the goal of the hedonist according to the wine's label. In that spirit the winemaker has allowed fermentation to take place with the minimum amount of interference. It was aged in American oak. Bring it on. Pair this Shiraz with a slow roasted pulled pork sandwich. - 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.
