Bottled by Hedges & Butler. Lightly coloured, a rusty red tone that is 30% opaque. The nose is not good, giving an odd smell of celery leaves. Initially on the palate this is thick and round but the palate deteriorates rapidly. The celery and green leaf dominates on a palate that is dirty and unclean. While the palate is unpleasant, the odd combination of flavours do settle down nicely on the aftertaste and finish. 81/100.
