About This Wine

A silky, comforting style reminiscent of lithe Chablis. The 2021 release is a blend of fruit from the Tamar and Derwent Valley. Pressed into old oak casks and left to enjoy a wild fermentation. Maturation took place over 9 months on lees. Some of the casks contained small proportions of whole clusters. 

Reviews;

96pts "Tamar Valley & Derwent Valley grapes. Older oak. No North, South, or East in 2021. So I guess this is North & South. This is kind of how Chablis should be, given a whole lot of it these days is too ripe and gluggy. Saline, white peach, honeyed almond and green apple, a little unmami something, maybe some preserved lemon. Tight, brisk, but has flavour, a lot of flint through a glossy texture, wheatgerm and brine, sour apple tang, intense and long. Lip-smacking and energetic, yet already complex. Wonderful wine." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)
