(2021) I've been a fan of Viña Leyda for many years, cemented by a visit to the estate many years ago where the attention to detail in their genuinely cool-climate, coastal vineyards was obvious. This has that Northern Rhône-ish, slightly herbal character, schisty  and smoky, olive and blackberry fruit. The palate is savoury and juicy, a wine that is more about lean, slightly meaty and tight black fruit rather than sweetness, with gastronomic appeal. On offer at £8.25 from 3rd March 2021. Watch the video for more information.
(2017) 'Boya' is the Spanish of buoy, reflecting the vineyards proximity to the ocean in the Leyda Valley. It's a Pinot with a distinctly meaty and stemmy character, lots of chestnut and highly aromatic, almost liniment characters, before a palate with good fruit and a certain earthiness and smokiness, a fresh raspberry brightness to the acidity and infill of creamy oak adding height and depth to the profile. The lovely sweetness at the core of this asserts in the finish. £9.99 when you buy a mixed six from Majestic. Watch the video for more information and food matching ideas.
(2016) A soft edge to the colour and touches of beetrooty character though majoring on ripe fruit and a certain swirling smokiness. Juicy palte, the ripeness of the plummy fruit with a little chestnut. Quite a powerful Pinot, but not without finesse.
(2016) Huge perfume here, lots of smoky bacon and floral lift comnbining to give aromatic fireworks. Lovely palate with black fruits and some sweet smoky oak, but it is the gaminess and earthiness that comes through in a very northern Rhone style. Price quoted is for the 2012 vintage
