"A generous and meaty red with lively but discreet acidity lifting, which keeps the full body light on its feet on the long, clean finish. Drink now or hold."

"Bright, brambly appeal on the nose with redcurrant and raspberry fruits. The palate has a plush, fleshy and saturated feel to it, with succulent tannins. Drink now."

"Supple generous, delicious. Adorned in yet another Gil Family Estate's stunning labels, this Garnacha is strawberry jam, violets, sarsaparilla, espresso and baking spices. Equally plush on the palate it has an impressive generosity; mocha, purple fruits, vanilla liqueur and licorice. Supple yet fresh and undeniably delicious."
