These guys are on a roll! This is simply astonishing with concentrated tropical fruit, lovely oak treatment and spice accents, yet lively and juicy thanks to great, nervy acidity. Long finish with floral notes.

Incredibly youthful, this show infant aromas of white flowers, candied peach, strawberries, chalky minerality, lively acidity and an immediate wow factor. Long and rich with great texture, still lactic but very promising.

Rhys. Pretty and powerful. So much here, citrus, apple, flinty and toasty but hints not obtrusive, orange oil and blossoms, lots of minerality for a domestic wine. Gawd I loves me some Rhys.

Intense minerality, wet stone and great acidity. Absolutely delicious. Lemon-lime, very Burgundian
