This feisty pink blend opens with intriguing notes of red pepper jelly, fresh redcurrant and cherry drop. There's a tasty interplay of sweet-and-sour red fruit on the palate, which sails to a lengthy finish. Perfect for pork skewers with tzatziki! (VINTAGES panel, March 2013)

Very pretty strawberry Kool Aid colour. A red berry fruit nose with a hint of leesy pastry dough. The palate is mid weight, offering more red berry and cherry fruit followed by a savoury bitter mid to end palate. Off dry, there's some structure here with medium acidity and moderate alcohol. Good length, not overly confected, but not a great deal of finesse either. Nice summer sipper and enough substance to stand up to wood burning pizza served al fresco. June 2014.
