This is the first vintage of still wine from Oastbrook, which was made in partnership with Simon Woodhead.
The Oastbrook begins with a fresh, clean nose of hedgerow, green fruit and gooseberry notes, with light hints of jasmine and white floral.
The palate is a visceral, energetic fusion of lime zest, cut grass, hedgerow, hints of pear drop and intense fruit.
There is a surprising depth and structure to this young wine, the spritely energy being a perfect counterpart to the richer, riper tropical fruit and white peach notes. Overall, this is a very tasty Gris with hints of the Alsace showing through.
