Savage White Blend 2015
As the wine slowly opens it releases pretty aromas of lemon zest and white peach followed by dusty minerals, honeysuckle and white floral. On the palate this has a gorgeous texture which is beautifully balanced with remarkable focus. Overall, this is a gorgeous wine which should continue to evolve and gain complexities with just a bit of bottle age.

Testalonga Follow Your Dreams 2020
Testalonga Baby Bandito Follow Your Dreams wine is a hugely aromatic and medium-bodied skin contact Carignan with aromas of crushed berries and flowers. The palate reveals sour cherry, strawberry and bright acidity, but then evolves to sweeter potpourri-like floral notes of violets and a lingering savoury finish.
