A blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Riesling and Pinot Meunier in almost equal components.
It’s the Chardonnay that shows on the nose, with stonefruit and toasty characters being ably supported with a little Riesling derived lime brulee.
Entry shows a wine of substance and texture – slippery with a lush velvet feel. There’s body and depth too, with spicy nuances adding extra interest.
It’s one for the acid-hounds, the wine clearly identifying itself as a product of a cool and damp vintage. In no way does this detract from its joy, but forewarned is forearmed. 92 - Very Good
Tasted on: Monday 7th January, a Flower Day
