(2016) The pea-shoot pungency of the Sauvignon comes through here in a wine from a cool year where those herbaceous aromas thrive, though the palate has both gently tropical, nectarine like fruit and a terrifically decisive sweep of citrus acidity. The oak very much in the background, but a more orthodox expression of Marlborough Sauvignon in many ways.
(2016) Lovely developed leesiness, with a tight mineral and salts character too and gentle apple fruit. A lovely big sour apple and orange hit of fruit and acidity, with intensity and a great focus and thrust of acidity through to the finish.
(2016) Immediate impression of intensity on the nose, with some floral characters, really quite a lifted character here with herbs and flint. Juicy and lemony, lots of apple freshness, but ripe with so much dashing acid intensity. A lovely young wine in the making.
(2016) Adds a cool lime and apple skin touch of concentration over the Domaine's Petit Chablis. The palate has a lovely and similar freshness and directness of citrus that is vibrant, but a fine tangy, fresh, really punchy finish with a hint of salt.
(2011) >From the Rhône Valley appellation of Luberon, this Syrah and Grenache blend has a fairly deep, vibrant pink colour, 12.5% ABV and is bottled under a synthetic cork. It has bright cherry fruit, a touch of Syrah pepper and a punchy appeal. On the palate it is fruity and dry, with good acidity of lemon and tart cherry playing against ripe fruit. A nice wine, but for the life of me I cannot see the price from UK stockist Corks Out being justified?
