The Oddbins Take

Balan is a character in Arthurian legend. In black armour, he was cursed to guard a castle and let none pass... this is starting to sound a lot like Monty Python, did at any point this Knight say "Tis but a scratch?" Perhaps this winery is named Chateau de Balan because inside the treasures are so great a lunatic black knight will sacrifice limbs to protect it. With ripe aromas of blueberry and cherry jam and with balanced, silky tannins surely this wine deserves a protector, that even armless will announce to the world "it's just a flesh wound!"
