Bright, fresh and lively aromas and flavours of citrus, lime and apricot with a racy crispness, great balance, minerality and lifted acidity on the refreshing finish.
2010 was an excellent vintage in Bordeaux and even the lesser wines show well. Deep ruby in colour, this shows a cedary, blackcurrant nose backed by spicy oak. Medium-bodied and dry, the wine is well balanced and firm. It will also reward cellaring for a few years.
A straightforward Pinot Noir with cherry, plum, spice, red flowers and vanilla attributes. Fine length, suave tannins and ready to drink.
This organic offering shows a range of blackberries, cherries, currants and spice on the nose. It’s a substantive wine on the nose with a thick broth of plums, cassis and currants with spicy wood nuances through the finish.
So pale it is almost clear, with ample fine mousse. Reticent nose hinting of lemons and limes. Quite tart, tastes like an unsweetened lemon pie, complete with the marshmallowy taste of the meringue. Drink now.
Traditionally made Sauvignon Blanc that spends 12 months on the lees. The nose shows lovely herbaceous notes of melon, citrus, fresh hay, grass and citrus with biscuity undertones. It’s bright and lively on the palate with a vigorous mousse to go with citrus and herbs through a sparkly finish.
Interesting blend of 4 varietals, of which the Chardonnay speaks loudest. Clear medium-deep gold. Fairly strong nose of citrus and apple with pronounced French oak. Full-bodied with a long finish and so much rich fruit (citrus, peach, apricot) it tastes almost off-dry. Only gets this score if you like oak. Will last a couple more years.
