This deep, bright purple-red coloured youngster is fresh, grapy and herby/spicy to sniff, with a sweet-fruit middle palate and a ripe and almost macerated fruit character. Lots of berries. It’s young and simple but very enjoyable already. Best within five years. 13.5 per cent alcohol. 89/100 – Huon’s Wine 360

Food: grilled chorizo

Stockists: Camperdown Cellars, Sydney; Blackhearts & Sparrows, Melbourne
