Opaque purple in colour with a cedary, spicy, blackberry nose with herbal notes; full-bodied, dry and savoury, richly extracted, firmly structured blackberry and dried herb flavours.
Opaquely deep purple. A “black” wine: aromas of black pepper, black cherry and black liquorice. Medium tannins and acidity. Fruit now starting to fade but still a bomb. Drink now.
Extremely deep intense purple colour with a minerally, spicy, creamy, sandalwood nose of blackberries and herbal notes; medium-bodied, dry and fruity with lively acidity and a firm tannic finish.
Very Burgundian in style; pale straw in colour with a slightly reductive nose of lemon and apple; medium-bodied, dry, elegant, beautifully balanced, lemony-green apple and white peach flavour with a long, fresh finish.
Extremely deep, intense purple colour. With a concentrated, spicy, creamy, sandalwood nose of blackberries with herbal notes; medium-bodied, dry and fruity with lively acidity and a firm tannic finish. Drinking well now.
Clear pale yellow. Robust nose of gooseberry, lime and passion fruit. Full-bodied, manages to be smooth on the palate but tart at the same time. Flavours of apple, lemon and grapefruit. Drink now.
Clear pale silvery yellow. Aromas of lime juice and pineapple with a bit of “cat’s pee” (sorry, but it’s true). Tastes of lemon and lime, also green mango, with intense acidity. Versatile food wine: the acidity can complement the bitterness of green veggies like asparagus or bell peppers, or contrast with and cut the oil of fish like salmon or mackerel. Will mellow and open up a bit with another year or two.
