(2017) Really attractive spices and florals, light and fleet of foot, cherry and briar and lovely palate, cool and creamy with really fine, fruity cherry character with enough briar and a touch of coffee.
(2017) No added sulphur, quite a delicate character, cherry bright and feels as though it has no oak, a bright juicy Beaujolais-like character, with a lovely texture and soft, easy-drinking palate. Very well done.
(2017) Much more stemmy and briary than the 'no clothes' version, a bit of truffle and sappiness, quite rich red fruit aromas beneath. The palate has a firm acid character, with good spicy finish.
(2017) From 30-year-old vines on the estate. Majority whole bunch, and 30% new oak. A bright and juicy character, with really dry, savoury acidity, buoyant and juicy on the palate, lots of cherry juiciness and tight, chewy tannins to lengthen the finish.
(2017) All whole bunch made in 100% new oak puncheons. Tight and sinewy, so much tannin and acid concentration, the palate very firm and juicy, tight and certainly feels as if it needs some time.
(2017) Fruit from the Coal River Valley blended with fruit from their own vineyard. A touch of sappy character, a touch of menthol and coffee, and then a nice sweetness of plum flesh and cherry ripe fruit, the juicy acids giving a nice briar and sappy touch. UK stockist and price quoted at time of review is for the 2013 vintage.
(2017) A nice briary character, a high, incense and smoke character, with real floral lift. The palate has crunch and freshness, with a racy acidity and fine balance. UK stockist and price quoted at time of review is for the 2013 vintage
(2017) Lovely wine, with a delicate creamy oak vanilla and has really charming fruit, masses of creamy cherry and bright raspberry, then a firm dark liquorice core. The endive bittersweetness of the acid and tannin core giving lovely length. UK stockist and price quoted at time of review is for the 2012 vintage.
(2017) Very soft, elegant and approachable, light bodied and terribly pretty, the sweetness of the fruit, a touch of rosy red apple, and the framework yielding and elegant. A little hint of briary, damp undergrowth to add interest.
(2017) This has a real lift and perfume, a touch of Sandalwood but also a kirsch-like, floral and cherry brightness. Much firmer on the palate than the straight Holm Oak Pinot, more depth but does not lack finesse. Price and stockist quoted at time of review is for the 2014 vintage.
