Always an intriguing wine and one that rewards a certain amount of patience. The tightly wound aromatics of our white blend start out somewhat subdued, and slowly evolve to show hints of pear, honeysuckle, spiced apple and quince. The depth of the perfume, set with waxy, floral notes and a piercing intensity that becomes more and more expressive as the wine sits in the glass. On the palate, everything is beautifully controlled – it’s fine, elegant and savoury, with a delicately pithy texture, while also displaying real depth, a touch of richness and well-judged structure. Initially quietly spoken, with time the volume gets turned up as the palate broadens out and becomes more expansive, all the time displaying wonderful line and length. A wine to contemplate while enjoying the savoury structure, which flatters a range of dishes. – Sandra de Pury
Marsanne 59%, Roussanne 41%. Our white Rhône blend is a subtle wine that displays restraint and quiet power. It starts subdued, with hints of pear, honeysuckle, lanolin and quince. With air it expands, building depth and breadth, showing notes of honey, lemon and jasmine. On the palate, it’s both taut and well rounded, savoury and subtly pithy, but also spicy and gently viscous. It’s a fabulous food wine that manages to complement both delicate and more fully flavoured dishes and, unusually, satisfies both white and red wine drinkers. Full of promise, the 2016 is certainly enjoyable now, and will continue to evolve over a number of years. – Sandra de Pury
A 59/41% split, spends 10 months on lees in seasoned barrels and it’s a mighty wine for its depth and precision. Flavour wise, it’s perfectly proportioned with whispers of stone fruit, honeysuckle, creamed honey and fine acidity. 95 points. Jane Faulkner, Halliday Wine Companion August 2018
An exotic nose showing spicy loquat, dried cloves, white peppers, sage, green apple ice cream and even some camembert. Full-bodied and very layered with pears and peach pith, which are really intensely flavored. Long and very spicy on the finish. Drink now. Screw cap. 94 points. Nick Stock, jamessuckling.com June 2018
