What the experts say:

94 Points, Silver Medal

Decanter World Wine Awards 2020

 "Lovely, teasing aromatics of blackberry and red plum. Star anise brightens a well-poised, ample palate of fleshy damson and sloe."

Lisa Perrotti-Brown 

The Wine Advocate, April 2019

“….. the deep garnet-purple colored 2018 George 7 gives up notes of prunes, baked blackberries and dried mulberries with touches of hoisin and licorice. Full and voluptuously fruited, with a plush frame, it has just enough freshness and a spicy finish.”
