Natalie's Score: 91/100

So lovely and juicy with rich layers of black cherry aromas and dark spice. A juicy, delicious, full-bodied Australian red wine blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro (aka Mourvèdre) grapes. Consistently great year after year. Perfect for barbecued meats.

Grenache Shiraz Mataro food pairings: charcuterie, BBQ t-bone steak, seasoned wedges, pasta with bacon and truffle.

Reviews and Ratings

A juicy, delicious, full-bodied Australian red wine blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro (aka Mourvèdre) grapes. The three GSM varieties are picked separately for this wine and are vinified separately. The subsequent wine is aged in a mixture of large oak vats, small oak vats, puncheons and smaller oak barrels, to allow it to develop without a lot of oak influence but more to increase structure, texture and complexity. Consistently great year after year. The wine is vegan, but it is perfect for barbecued meats. - 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.
