Jane Anson

Denise and Stephen Adams here succeeded with biodynamically grown fruit, even in 2018. It`s definitely concentrated, with the emphasis on black fruits, liquorice, olive paste and dark chocolate. But pull up a chair and sit with it for a while and you start to notice more subtle nuances of flowers and herbs. The juicy, gourmet patisserie side begins to punch out of the glass after five minutes, and once again I`m left admiring what they are doing at this property. It`s extremely attractive, but I think the balance was better in 2016, when there was just a little more grace in the wine. Drink 2026 - 2040. 94 points
