(2017) Fruit from the Coal River Valley blended with fruit from their own vineyard. A touch of sappy character, a touch of menthol and coffee, and then a nice sweetness of plum flesh and cherry ripe fruit, the juicy acids giving a nice briar and sappy touch. UK stockist and price quoted at time of review is for the 2013 vintage.
(2017) A nice briary character, a high, incense and smoke character, with real floral lift. The palate has crunch and freshness, with a racy acidity and fine balance. UK stockist and price quoted at time of review is for the 2013 vintage
(2017) Lovely wine, with a delicate creamy oak vanilla and has really charming fruit, masses of creamy cherry and bright raspberry, then a firm dark liquorice core. The endive bittersweetness of the acid and tannin core giving lovely length. UK stockist and price quoted at time of review is for the 2012 vintage.
(2017) Very soft, elegant and approachable, light bodied and terribly pretty, the sweetness of the fruit, a touch of rosy red apple, and the framework yielding and elegant. A little hint of briary, damp undergrowth to add interest.
(2017) This has a real lift and perfume, a touch of Sandalwood but also a kirsch-like, floral and cherry brightness. Much firmer on the palate than the straight Holm Oak Pinot, more depth but does not lack finesse. Price and stockist quoted at time of review is for the 2014 vintage.
(2017) Firm and juicy cherry, a tight almost watercolour paintbox style, crisp cherry and a touch sappy, but a nice tight finish - not great complexity, but beautifully done.
(2017) East coast fruit, and much more earthy and briary than the straight Devil's Corner 2015, twigs and bracken, and a soft but more solid red fruit. The palate has lots of creamy berry ripeness, a slick of vanilla, but it stays focused.
(2017) A touch of earthiness and hint of briar to solid berry fruits. A nice bite of cherry skin acidity, tight but silky chocolate tannins and spice, with firm juicy acidity, tight on the finish with an chicory bite.
(2017) Earthy, rich, roasted chestnut touches. Very firm and juicy in the mouth, plenty of oak and tannin and firm juiciness, a very direct, solid structure that suggests it will need time.
(2017) Soft, sweet vanilla, tertiary development and good oak quality, a touch of roasted chestnut and sweet damp earth. The palate has a little stripe of red liquorice, firm and structured, but sweet fruit hangs from the framework.
