(2023) Whole bunch pressed, this was part barrel-fermented, followed by barrel maturation in 46% new oak for around one year. There's plenty of toast here, the flinty character is there too, if less overt than some, crunchy and nutty apple blends with that toasty barrel character. In the mouth real sweetness and juiciness of fruit. There's a big and tangy core of orange and lemon/lime acidity that is quite rounded but decisive. Along with that nutty undertow of the toasty oak, it's a textured and full, approachable style. No UK retail stockists listed at time of review.
