Comes in a 750 ml bottle. Pale golden, with an aroma of ripe fruit, vanilla, and a sherry edge. Light, crisp, fruity initial flavour, with a dry edge, developing a woody aftertaste, with an alcohol burn in the finish. Drinkable, with the Blakeney Red varietal signature obvious, but the dryness detracts from some of the variety qualities of mellow ripeness and rich flavour. Not as good as the 2015 vintage, to my mind.

Light golden colour, clear and still. Single variety perry. Aroma of sherry and a little vanilla. Woody flavour. Light and clean. I could drink this all day.
