Reviews and Ratings

Kimberly Inksater - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A typical full bodied Aussie Shiraz with aromas of smoked meat, rich black fruit, black pepper, and dark chocolate. The bold flavours, dry leather and tannins on the palate call out for grilled red meats. This Shiraz is fermented with wild yeasts and aged 18 months in new French oak barrels.
Philippe Perreault, Sommelier rated this wine as 84/100 with the following review:

Deep purple color.

Aromas of cherry, blackberry, black pepper, mint, chocolate and oak.

The palate is fresh, chewy full-bodied and long.

Pair it with a beef sirloin with chimichurri sauce.

Serve it at 15-17 degrees.

Can be aged 8-10 years.
This single vineyard estate is situated in the cooler, elevated northeast region of the McLaren Vale and has 12 individual blocks of Shiraz vines planted in ironstone and sand soils that overlie the ancient North Maslin Sands geological formation. The 2012 vintage of this Shiraz is firm tannins and black fruit aromatics. - Community Wine Reviews

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.

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.
