Natalie's Score: 94/100

Love the nose on this full-bodied Shiraz from the Barossa Valley, South Australia. Ripe dark cherry, blueberry and fragrant blue floral aromas on the nose. Vibrant on the palate with dark berry, cherry, white pepper and savoury herb flavours on the palate. Enjoy now and a keeper for the next 15 years.

Shiraz food pairings: venison stew, venison sausage and wild mushroom sauce, spicy spatchcock partridge.

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.
