Time of release
Typical deep magenta colour as an indicator of its power on the palate. Sweet red berries and ripe red fruit aromas follow through in the mouth with a beautiful balance of silky, supple tannins and great natural acidity. Will live for a long time, but as usual, highly drinkable now. 15 percent alcohol/volume.

Medium deep purple crimson. Lovely perfumed dark cherry, mocha, herb garden aromas with underlying savoury, roasted chestnut notes. Superbly concentrated and well balanced wine with deep set dark cherry, blackberry, dark chocolate flavours, plentiful savoury, touch bitter sweet tannins and underlying roasted chestnut ginger nuances. Finishes firm but long and fruit sweet. A classic Georgia's Paddock. Can easily drink now - but the best is yet to come. Leave for a few years. 2015 - 2030 - 96 points

Medium deep colour. Fragrant and expressive wine with dark cherry, chinotto, inky aromas with hints of mocha. Beautifully balanced wine with superb inky complexity, fresh vibrant dense dark cherry blackberry fruits, integrated fine slinky tannins and underlying mocha oak complexity. Finishes firm with persistent fruit, fresh aniseed kick (alcohol) and mineral length. A genuinely great wine in perfect symmetry. 15% Alc 98 points – Now – 2040
