D0 brick red rim, crystal clear rich magenta with a figgy nose. Rewarding in the mouth, sweet fruit, caramel, spice and a surprising wallop of alcohol with a hint of acid. Great with Davistow mature cheddar! Nice port, not earth shattering but good all the same

D6 Spice and acid more subdued. Pallate dominated by sweet sugar water, caramel and rasin. A number say 90.

Wonderfully dark magenta. On the nose alcohol and soft fruit are there but subdued. Tannins are puckering on the palate. The finish is quite long with fruit and a touch of spicy ginger and hit of bitters. I can see the balance people talk about in this wine but it is so young.

A score 92 with more to come I suspect

A young wine that needs time to come together. Lovely dark crimson colour, spirit and oak dominate for the first couple of hours then the fruit starts to come through. Quite long red fruits with an alcohol kick. After 48 hours plus the spirit starts to integrate/diminish and the spicy fruit with a dollop of oak comes to the front.

Not experienced enough to score. High 80s?

Lovely if you like the buttery/oily/oaky subtle minerality style, which I do. Up there with Waterford and perhaps behind Ataraxia.

Suprisingly fresh after 6 years. Lighter style pinotage, dry and tasty with meat.

Fun, fruity and fully ripe from out in the sticks in SA. Great QPR at GBP4

Very fruity, you can tell they likr to make port style wines. A little sweet and not enough acid for food but who can complain at about GBP2?

Very smooth and well integrated. Alcohol doesn't dominate as much as say the 1994. Great length, sweet and lots of fruit. Almost has the wow factor. Very much my style of VP (perhaps too sweet for some?).

My house white for the next 11 bottles. Refreshing, fruity and great to drink when the weather is hot. Takes me back to trying it in SA in March which is a lovely memory! Hard to beat it at GBP4 I think.
