“…. tastes and feel ripe but also fresh and juicy. Modern. There’s a jellied redcurrant aspect to the core of ripe fruit. Still very young. It’s still bedding itself down like a black cat on Jack’s lap, but it’s on its way to a fine place and anyway, there’s plenty to be enjoyed even now.” Drink: 2020-2031 93+ points
