(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.
