smooth and nice

I was a bit sceptical when I noticed the screw top. However, this one is so smooth and easy going. Works well with a home cooked dinner. Cosy.

Rather bland and slightly too acidic

Light and smokey with a hint of red fruit flavour, drinkable, but slightly too acidic. There's certainly better options out there at the same price range.
