Tasting Notes

This wine really puts a smile on your face - pure joy! Such an enticing nose – scents of warm lime and apple blossom greet you, with wafts of mango and passionfruit in the background. There's a mouth-watering hint of spritz which really awakens the palate. Pure fruit flavours of crisp apple, ripe pear and zesty grapefruit are underpinned by a backbone of slatey minerality. It's that backbone that really sets this wine apart – absolutely brilliant! Is it 'Dry'? Yes, but balanced with an underlying core of weight - firmly grounded with exhilarating lift. It's the sort of wine that's not only wonderful as an aperitif to really wake up the tastebuds, but also a great food wine, with enough texture and salinity to partner a wide variety of dishes, including the difficult spicy Asian cuisines. Put simply, it's delicious, and at only 11% alcohol, it's a wine I'd happily drink all day long! Certainly a two-case wine – the first for drinking now and the second to lay down – the fruit is balanced with such elegant minerality, this will continue to develop and improve for a decade or more. A remarkable wine, and remarkable value too. 11% abv. drink now – 2025
