Mz27. Pale red, 30% opaque. Nose had brown sugar and a hint of pepper. Palate light, grassy, cloying, hint of mint. Not quite right. But it improved in the glass, an hour or so later becoming better balanced and fuller.

This was brown-red, with more fruit in the nose than the '22. This was slightly more robust, a little candied, but still light. Juicy in the mouth again, light and peppery.

40% opacity, burnt brown-orange. Burnt sugar nose. Quick to a finish with a tiny little heat, velvety sweetness, very dry.

Golden orange with a pale rim, 20%. Sweet nose of fragrant orange and hibiscus flowers - expressive and delicious. Later this became sweeter and more balanced. Lightweight on entry, with sweet golden sultanas. On the mid-palate and late palate there is more acidity that provides fragrance and balance. A touch of tannin shows as a hint of dryness on the palate; quite light overall. A huge aftertaste, then a big finish of green wood that lasts for ages. 93/100.
