(2023) The 2017 opens with a smooth, minty creaminess. It then moves into mushroom and truffle, but the palate maintains a racy edge with chestnut character as well as good fruit, length and balance.
(2023) Seven Springs age their Pinot for around nine months in older, French oak barrels. This vintage displays a lovely creaminess and harmony, with a background of nutty and smoky oak. Earthy, mushroom and truffle lead into sweet and solid fruit. Spicy and rich, but lovely harmony and length here. Note that price and stockist given is for the 2017 vintage at time of review.
(2023) Quite a deep pink colour here, and a fruity rather than mineral style. Nice berry fruits, the palate showing a redcurrant firmess with touches of rhubarb. Dry and racy finish. Price quoted is for the 2022 vintage at time of review.
(2019) Really bright cherry fruit edging into jaminess, a hint of nutty character and spice. The palate becomes quite pure and fresh, tannins slick and acids are cherry-ish, fine spice, dry cranberry. Long and fine.
