Reviews and Ratings

From New Zealand's South Island, Wild Rock (2016) is a bright and vibrant Sauvignon Blanc with green herbs, green pepper and all things fresh and green on the nose. On the palate, look for mouth-watering grapefruit, lime and ripe tropical fruit notes. Drink now and for the next couple of years. - 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.
