30% opaque. Pale pink with some orange, Spirity nose with some tobacco. Warm orange on the palate. Drying out but with some interest still. Hint of sweet chili on the finish. A slightly flawed bottle; more than merely drinkable; but I cannot see this wine as being anything other than on the downwards slope.

10% opacity, golden yellow. Extracted ripe citrus fruit, vanilla and marzipan on the nose. Syrupy, chewy entry, nuts, margin, heat late palate. I guessed G55.
