25% opacity, red-amber, copper rim. Quite short on the palate with a slight burnt citrus edge which lingers long on the aftertaste. Easily wins over a flawed G63, but not a stellar bottle of D63.

Mature red, 30% opaque. Little on the nose other than some steel wool minerality. This delivers a lovely balance on entry but is lightly flavoured with the minerality dominating over the fruit at first. Patience and air delivers the fruit - and there is a lot of it! Smooth on the aftertaste, with a gentle but delicious finish. A lovely wine that was much more enjoyable than the nose anticipated. 91/100.
