INFO:
English winemakers have never lacked for passion, enthusiasm or entrepreneurial spirit. Until recently, though, the products were never good enough to justify the excitement. So they tended to find more hospitable climes overseas. David Briscoe has vines in Hertfordshire, and also this lovely estate inland of Cape Town at Robertson - an up-and-coming region. He favours the traditional Bordeaux varietals, and treats their excellent ripeness very well indeed.

7 WORD WINE REVIEW:

Smooth, balanced, fruity and rather scarily drinkable.
