Time of release
A vintage showing better growing conditions than the last few drought affected ones. Not as massive as say the 03, yet with all the great balance and finesse that Georgias is known for, including the sweet, spicy fruit flavours and viscous palate. Beautiful magenta tone. Will cellar for ten years, maybe more, but you can drink from now onwards. 13.5 percent alcohol/volume.

Medium deep colour. Aniseed/ raspberry aromas with some savoury notes. Well balanced with with sweet raspberry/ aniseed flavours, minerally acidity and fine loose knit tannins. Finishes minerally and long. More elegantly structured than previous vintages. 91 points

Medium deep colour. Fresh red currant, liquorice, praline aromas. Supple and richly flavoured with redcurrant, mocha liquorice characters, plentiful graphite tannins and underlying spice, savoury nuances. Finishes chalky firm and long. Still needs more time to meld. 2015 - 2025 - 92 points
