Green-gold. Some petrol but nose otherwise a bit dull. Sweet style with petrol on the palate, some acid but a touch cloying; an off unclean character too – bit oxidised perhaps? Finish is caramel with only a hint of fruit.

Bought from www.blackmarket.co.nz. The case of 12 (one bottle from each of the Challenge winemakers) was great value for $120. Stored in a cool spare room.
