Xinomavro/Syrah blend. Pale candy pink. Fresh red fruits on the nose followed by terrific freshness on the palate with some hints of orange. Tastes dryish but perhaps not bone dry yet the finish is clean-cut and mouthwatering. Would be great on its own or with food. (JH)

Price/Stockist RRP £13.20

50/50 Xinomavro/Syrah. Unusual flask-shaped bottle. Shining, delicate salmon-pink colour. Delicate on the nose too – manages to smell of sweet red fruits and Victoria plums without any hint of excess sweetness or confection. This is so well made – depth of flavour combined with delicacy, plus a light touch with just enough tannin to give it a serious side. Clearly very good fruit and dextrous winemaking. Dry and long and sophisticated and yet giving masses of pleasure. GV (JH)
