Bright medium dark brick red color. Floral, fruity aromas of orange blossoms, roasted golden barley, sultana raisins, and fresh grapey finish with a lively, sweet full body and a warming, complex, medium-long finish with well-integrated, firm tannins and moderate oak flavor.

Bright gold color. Exotic, interesting spicy aromas and flavors of pickled fruits, exotic herbs, and apple mint jelly with a soft, tart, dryish light body and a sleek, interesting, medium-length finish manifesting notes of Buddha’s hand, persimmon, gherkin, and paprika with no oak flavor. A fascinatingly spicy and exotic chardonnay.
