Pretty awful. Could be any variety. Sickly with little to no balance. Avoid. — 5 years ago
Berried nose followed by a red apple and gentle autolytic palate. Fine mousse and m+ length. High acidity keeps the wine very fresh. — 6 years ago
A curio from New Zealand, apparently Esk Valley are the only people to have planted Verdelho in the country. This bottle was so-so, I've had better bottles of this before, perhaps this was a recent shipment that needs time to settle? Not as much aromatics this time around. — 6 years ago
Modern style of grenache avoiding over extraction leaving soft and smooth tannins, red fruit and sweet spice. Well judged wine. — 5 years ago
Natural wine made biodynamically. High acidity, clean and refreshing. Alcohol not too noticeable. Bramble fruit and plum skin. High tannins, relatively well integrated. Pretty good stuff. — 5 years ago
Fine tannin, medium plus acidity, medium body, medium minus alcohol. Plenty of red fruit and herbs. Tasting note from memory, tasted wine two months ago. — 5 years ago
Easy going blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Has a nice level of acidity and tannin. Loads of dark hedgerow fruit and a touch of sweet spice. Not hugely complex, but a crowd pleasing sort of wine. Will be lovely with a rare sirloin steak. £15 a bottle and holds its value. — 6 years ago
