Individual judge’s scores: Pedro Ballesteros Torres MW 17 Sarah Jane Evans MW 17.5 Mike Ritchie MW 17
Nice berry fruit opening up to meaty, liquorice notes. Generous supple palate with a dollop of bright acidity – clean and refreshing. A youthful mouthful of brambles and blueberries with a well-balanced finish.
