(2017) An undergrowth and truffle quality, lots of incense like exoticism grip, violet and a touch of rich Manuka honey, a lovely racing acidity and savoury.
(2017) Cool, lightly creamy and oatmeally, with plenty of crisp apple acidity, the oak very deftly handled in a balanced and appealing wine. Rounded and textural, with enough peachy ripeness, but a feeling of natural acid balance.
(2017) Ripe apple and citrus, A weighty and gently creamy character, little yeasty notes. Equally appealing palate, weight without being ponderous and good acids to tension the finish.
(2017) Fine mineral and flint nose, the waxed lime finesse is lively in a beautifully developed wine. Limey and waxy on the palate, with a tense mineral acidity and gentle grip.
(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.
