A game of two halves? I tried this at the winery last weekend and was pleasantly surprised, only to be disappointed with a bottle at home.
First time round, I observed a thin appearance, but surprisingly rich nose with cherry, liquorice and subtle hints of vanilla.
Palate was quite light, but very defined dark fruit flavours, smooth oaky notes and good acidity.
The bottle I had at home was totally different; musty liquorice and confected fruits on the nose, unwelcome fizz coupled with a sharp acidic taste.
I will give it the benefit of the doubt and put down the second experience as a bad bottle.
Light but intense and refreshing with dry elegance and purity.
Very clean palate, rich zesty flavours with baked apples & pastry notes.
Very much a summer drinking rosé, with surprising length and citrus vibrancy.
A delicious wine, lively and full in flavour with a sweeter fruit streak.
Another excellent delicate and aromatic white wine from Nutbourne in Sussex.
A good example of a clean and tasty English Chardonnay.
