Awards and Press News: Team leader Lionel Periner had only good things to say about this Gold Lister's savoury nose of "Mediterranean herbs and tomato stew, with red fruits, too', going on to describe "a full-bodied palate with some bramble notes and a touch of smokiness'. The Glasshouse's Adam Michocki enjoyed notes of "wild strawberries, cranberries, raspberries and red cherries, with an earthy, leathery character, too, and firm tannins balanced by refreshing acidity'.
