[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="17245" img_size="full" alignment="center"][vc_column_text]As you’d expect for the flagship white, this is hand-picked fruit, whole-bunch pressed to French barrels, 25% new, and aged 12 months. No mlf and no lees stirring. Tight as a drum, shot with racy acidity. And no shortage of very flinty sulphides, which would be too much funky reduction, if not for the weight and richness of fruit to balance. Complex, assured, rich, textural, savoury and compelling.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="17244" img_size="full" alignment="center"][vc_column_text]This is almost black, with a shot of red/purple. It's not a wallflower. There are plenty of steadfast grainy tannins reined in by a ribbon of acidity. Smells great, tastes even better: black cherries, exotic spices plus sumac, the flavours are intense and satisfying. It opens up more and more, revealing a gloss across the full-bodied palate.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="17242" img_size="full" alignment="center"][vc_column_text]While it comes packaged with a level of richness and ripe fruit, a tight line of acidity ensures everything is neatly in place. White nectarines and peaches, a dab of citrus with lots of spice plus honeycomb and cream. Savoury, moreish and super-refreshing. Good drinking now.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="17242" img_size="full" alignment="center"][vc_column_text]10% whole bunches in the fermentation. Matured in 5% new oak barriques for 11 months. This is a really refreshing style of juicy pinot. It actually has a beaujolais nouveau feel to it: super-bright and mouth-watering. Juicy cherries, rhubarb, quite herbal yet lightly spiced with an appealing Campari and blood-orange flavour. Tannins light and in the background, acidity in charge here. Delicious.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="17241" img_size="full" alignment="center"][vc_column_text]This is rich with full-on gris flavours all out on display. Poached pears, clotted cream with ginger spice, baked apples and crème brûlée and of course, the slippery texture. I wouldn't hold this much longer: ready now.

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_single_image image="17241" img_size="full" alignment="center"][vc_column_text]A boldness of flavour reflects the MV6 clone and its place on the peninsula. Dark cherries, exotic spices with wafts of earth, bitumen and cedary oak. Full bodied and dense, with an abundance of fine-grained tannins, not yet resolved, with perky acidity in the lead. This feels as though it's still coming together and will unfurl in time.
