Reviews and Ratings

Lip-smacking delicious with layers of pleasure in the glass. Full-bodied, rich and complex with fleshy ripe cassis and wild blackberry aromas on the nose and palate of this robust Australian red wine blend Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro (aka Mourvèdre) also known as a GSM blend. A black plum, smoky finish. Nicely done! Pair with grilled meats. MINE: Two Hands Brave Faces is a full-bodied, fleshy Grenache Mourvèdre and Shiraz red wine blend from the Barossa Valley in South Australia. This is a great value wine for what it is with rich layers of blackberry, black plum, blueberry an dried herb flavours wrapped up in delicate smoke. OTHER: This is a svelte, stylish, easy-drinking red wine with just enough in-built complexity to set it apart from the norm. It won't scare any horses but nor will it put anyone to sleep. On the latter point: the alcohol has been nicely tamed too. It tastes of leather and woodsmoke, blueberry and raspberry, with woody anise and resin as garnish. There's a peppercorn note and more than a hint of reduction. It all slips down nicely. Drink: 2017-2024+. Score - 91 (Campbell Mattinson, winefront.com.au, Nov. 15, 2017). - 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.
