(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.
(2017) East coast fruit, and much more earthy and briary than the straight Devil's Corner 2015, twigs and bracken, and a soft but more solid red fruit. The palate has lots of creamy berry ripeness, a slick of vanilla, but it stays focused.
(2017) A touch of earthiness and hint of briar to solid berry fruits. A nice bite of cherry skin acidity, tight but silky chocolate tannins and spice, with firm juicy acidity, tight on the finish with an chicory bite.
(2017) Soft, sweet vanilla, tertiary development and good oak quality, a touch of roasted chestnut and sweet damp earth. The palate has a little stripe of red liquorice, firm and structured, but sweet fruit hangs from the framework.
(2017) A touch of smoke and ash, bright cherry and a little kirsch note, with rhubarb and beetroot flavours developing. A nice open Pinot, yet again it tightens and firms up in the finish very usefully and is long and impressive.
(2017) 10% whole bunch-pressed and 15% new oak used for maturation. A bit closed and slightly bound sulphur character, though really sweet fruit beneath, with lovely texture and breadth on the palate, nice bit of grip but good fruit sweetness to the end.
