(2013) 52% Semillon fermented in 500-litre casks, Romanian and French. The Sauvignon Blanc is unwooded. There's a creamy, gently almondy and toasty note here of barrel ferment, with the buttery and lemony aromas to the fore, much more white Bordeaux than Loire or NZ. The palate is very fresh, very vibrant, the lemony freshness coming through powerfully and the white fruit and mineral acidity. Does it have a slight hole in the middle/disjointedness? Very impressive, but perhaps that transition from creamy to crisp needs to be smoothed a little.
(2013) Fresh, a touch of lemon and leafiness, though not hugely distinctive. The palate has fine juicy freshness though the ripe sweetness of the fruit is what makes this gently tropical and easy to drink. Dry in the finish, not complex but balanced.
(2013) This is made with 8.6g/l of residual sugar, so is just off dry. Much deeper, more yellow colour. Nutty, touches of nectarine or pineapple, a touch of syrup or honey on the nose too, some vanilla again. On the palate this is a big wine, the RS apparent, and against the structure and power of the wine it feels a little hot in the finish, perhaps a little disjointed.
(2013) Only 12.68% abv and plenty of aroma here, plenty of lemon verbena and touches of leafiness. The palate is bone dry, and racy, that acid keeping the picture sharp if not complex.
(2013) 12.5% abv, with plenty of elderflower and thiol character, with a gooseberry freshness and hint of passionfruit. On the palate it has lots of juicy freshness and it is very dry, though perhaps a touch less decisive, a little hint of dilution, but fresh and appetising.
(2013) 12.5% abv, this is quite pungent and green, with loads of herbs and rosemary and dill, a real streak of herbaceousness over lemony fresh fruit. On the palate it has a really nice concentration, the fruit retains that herbaceous bite, but the apple and fresh, lemon really streaks through into a decisive, dry but long finish.
