Natalie's Score: 90/100

A big honkin' Shiraz with a warm embrace of dark red fruit. When you bang for your buck, go straight to the Aussie aisle of your liquor store. There’s 6% of the Viognier grape in this blend to give the wine a lovely lift and brightness on the mid-palate. The wine was also aged in 20% new oak. A sweet blackcurrant nose with notes of pepper, violets and plump plums on the follow-up. This multi-textured wine is a superb value. Perfect for casual weeknight meals at home or potluck get-togethers.

Shiraz Viognier food pairings: Tandoori flavored dishes, roast goose, tongue, parmesan cheese, grilled vegetables.

Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Violets, blueberry, flowers, boysenberry and a hint of stone fruit that can only be associated with the Viognier. A big wine. I'm 89 on this wine. (ottawawinejournal.com)

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty 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.
