(2022) I last tasted this wine in the 2019 vintage, and while scoring it exactly the same - 88 points out of 100 - then it's price was £12.99 and I liked it enough to make it Wine of the Week. This cuvée is very similar, an unoaked white wine with a distinct pear and peach fruit character, a hint of talcum, and a certain solidity and intensity of flavour and texture that is quite mouth-filling and yet crisp. It is subtle without making a great impact in either aromatics or flavour. There's nothing wrong with subtlety, but now that the price has risen to £18 I am slightly more reserved about the wine I must say. £12.99 is still in the ballpark of where I could have given it more whole-hearted approval: it is a very good, example, but for me not distinctive enough to ask £18.00.
(2020) A very unusual, but highly successful, blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Petit Manseng, Traminer and Semillon from the coastal Maremma, fermented with wild yeasts and only a very small percentage spending a few months in larger French oak barrels. The Sauvignon is vivacious and bright on the nose, but with a candied quality and a little buttery richness too, so it is both vivid and rounded. In the mouth beautifully sweet and ripe orchard and stone fruit flavours have great freshness thanks to the cool, lightly salty, lime-streaked acidity. Lovely.
