WINE REVIEW

The first vintage of Classic from Raimes, this 2014 is a blend of 51% Chardonnay, 29% Pinot Noir and 20% Pinot Meunier. As usual, the wine is produced at Hattingley Valley.

What an appealing wine, beginning with inviting, rich brioche aromas with warming vanilla and oodles of ripe orchard fruit, apples and pears, with a delicate spring blossom note.

The palate is full and giving; again, rich on the ripe orchard fruit flavours with a decadently creamy, soft mousse. There’s a slightly sweeter note, but the wine’s depth and crisp citrus character keep it really well balanced.

The Raimes Classic is in a fantastic place right now, and another sign that this is a producer to continue to watch closely.
