25% opacity, red-orange. Soft and sweet, like many of the others on show, very drinkable, but perhaps fading a little.

Light burnished copper, 30% opaque. A lovely nose of beeswax and rosehips, lively. Soft and textured entry, rich and full of mature and spiced stewed fruit. Fresh and lively fruit on the palate, modest in level. Redcurrants and brown sugared cranberries on the palate. Lovely spiced fruit compote aftertaste before a long and fragrant finish. 92
