(2020) A blend from six vineyards, 10% is wild-fermented in barrel, 15% wild-fermented in tank, the rest inoculated but stays on the lees. Pungent elderflower nose, lots of passion fruit and flinty, sulphide notes. Zesty citrus in the background. The palate is all about that dry, zingy citrus lemon and grapefruit pith. The finish verges on a touch of endive bitterness.
(2017) Plums and cherry skins on the nose, a touch of smouldering bonfire, in a nicely judged Merlot where sweet and ripe fruit has enough plushness without becoming too jammy, with easy-going tannins to give it a bit of grip.
(2017) Sourced from Chile's Central Valleys, and bearing a lovely label depicting Georges Seurat's lovely 'Bathers at Asnières' on the label, this is a modestly-oaked Chardonnay with orange and lime through more tropical peachy aromas, and flavours that marry the same to a firm lemon and lightly salty acidity.
(2009) Nicely warming, ripe berry fruit, with a hint of black cherry and gentle herbal notes. The palate has a nice hint of fleshiness and though a still find this a touch sweet, a bit of spice and tannic grip keep it fresh. Good value for Pinot.
(2009) Slightly vague nose, with a touch of green character and decent fruit. On the palate fruity and straightforward, but with overdosed residual sugar leaving it spicy, fruity but a touch cloying.
