Time of release

Back on the list, after missing the 2016 vintage. Miniscule volumes of this white Bordeaux styled wine: has a rounded palate of buttery honey and lanolin with a new French oak background and a light tannic finish. Fourteen months bottle age prior to release, it has already thrown a small harmless tartrate “wine diamonds” deposit. Ideally matched to oily fish or roast chicken. 14.0% alc/vol

Tasting notes by Andrew Caillard, MW – 8th August 2017

Pale colour. Aniseed, fennel lemon, camomile aromas with yeasty complexity and lanolin notes. Fresh lemon aniseed flavours, fine chalky consistency, savoury roasted chestnut complexity and long acid cut. A touch of spearmint at the finish. A very intriguing wine with fresh buoyant fruit and underlying oak complexity. 14% Alc 93 points – Now – 2028
