    2. I was actually pouring at a tasting so just snuck a quick taste in and really dug it. Can't really add much in the way of descriptors - enough soft, plummy fruit I suppose but a really nicely layered structure and earthy, savoury complexity were the highlights. Sophie Otton was the only taster I chatted to about the wines and she was really impressed with this one too.
