Formerly known as Ruchioch, but now the more prosaic Smith. Easier to check into a hotel for a dirty weekend with this wine, for sure. If you have a new McBryde, you don’t have to worry about such things. What am I saying? It’s not the 1950s.

Bath salts, lime and spice, with a lovely chalky feel to texture, a certain savoury edge, tight acidity, such good grainy texture and complexity, with a very long finish, and a quinine-like tang in the aftertaste. So engaging and good to drink.
