Reviews and Ratings

Gwen Barton rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Clean nose with blackberry, leather, mint and eucalyptus. Lots of dark fruit and heat on the palate. Medium soft tannins and acidity holds its own. Very enjoyable!
While New Zealand is more famous for its Pinot Noir and Merlot, Syrah is on the rise. The 2013 vintage of this red wine won a Blue Gold Medal at the Sydney International Wine Competition in 2015. - 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.
