Mz63. Red-orange, pale, 20% opaque. Palate soft and very smooth, with some heat, but light. Drink up.

This was quite varnishy in both nose and mouth. I did not note anything else.

Golden red, quite light at only 20% opaque. Very little on the nose, just some harsh dust and acetone. A quick sniff of a neighbour's glass indicated this was a glass issue and so a clean glass was used to reveal a little orange oil on the nose. Light bodied, perhaps on the medium side, floral and elegant with dusty, tangerine fruit. A big burst of the tangerine flavour on the aftertaste and finish. The finish is somewhat clipped and drops off quickly, but then when you least expect it the finish suddenly comes back with a bang! 89/100.
