Grüner Veltliner 2016

No one was as surprised as we were by the way our customers old and new, took to this little known grape variety with the unpronounceable name. We’ve heard it called everything from Grunter Vintner to Groovy Jetliner but the important thing is that people were charmed by the unusual combination of grainy texture, beguiling sweetness, bounteous fruit and an acid balance which walks just a little on the wild side –and many were prepared to put their money where their mouths had just been.

Sauvignon Blanc 2017

It has been my long held conviction that Sauvignon Blanc amongst all other varietals, most faithfully reflects the nuances of the season in which it was grown.

Pinot Gris 2016

Thwarted again! Just when we had worked ourselves into a position where we were able to offer our dry and highly textured Pinot Gris with some desirable bottle age on it, an increased voracity for the style plus the effect of the small 2015 vintage have propelled us into having to release this wine after just 8 months in the bottle. Don’t worry though, all the constituents are there but we would strongly encourage you to tuck a couple of bottles of this wine away in the cellar for a year or two to allow it to truly flex its muscles.

Chardonnay 2014

Tasting notes to come.

In the meantime Bob Campbell says:

"Bold, weighty Chardonnay with a silk-smooth texture and peach, grapefruit, root ginger, bran biscuit and spicy oak flavours. Bone-dry with a moderately lengthy finish. A gutsy, flavoursome chardonnay." 93/100
