40% opacity, warm red, amber rim. Sweet nose. Sweetness on the early palate, then mild acidity in the finish. Lacking some structure but a long aftertaste.

Bottled by the Wine Society. Rose red in colour, 20% opaque. Little shows on the nose apart from a some faint fruit. Nice entry with lots of fruit and pleasant freshness. The balanced acidity keeps the palate fresh throughout, showng a nice array of fruit, albeit a little one-dimensional. The gentle fruit finish highlights the lovely elegance to this wine. 88/100. Decanted 8 hours.
