dark red colour, black centre. The nose issues a charming sweetness in its blackberry and blueberry fruit, the fruit enticing. The palate runs softly and well, gives enjoyable, tasty black fruits with an in-built sweetness, a relative delicacy. The flavour centres on blackcurrant, blueberry, has good definition. The tannins add a little outer casing to it. This is a rounded, stylish, spherical wine that will please, aided by its cool tenor late on. It can be drunk now, on its youthful charm. 15°. 2,000 b. 50% Gren, 50% Syr. 2027-29 Feb 2018

red, clear robe. The nose rustles up raspberry fruit, with a rose perfume top note, a little darkness. The palate is charged, compact, fuelled by redcurrant, red cherry fruits with snappy tannins. It can fuse and amplify over time, has substance. The degree is a slight issue vis-à-vis its balance. It has a muscled, close-knit close, with oak sealing it as well. Decanting advised. 15°. From 2020. 2029-30 Feb 2018
