...flat-out stunner. Crazy, beautiful, deeply spiced aromatics literally explode from the glass. Broad and ample on the palate, with tremendous intensity... Orange peel, mint and spice overtones add an exotic flair. This is an utterly captivating Pinot Noir from Rhys.
...offers a more savory, mineral style as well as terrific depth of fruit. Lots of currant and black cherry fruits, ample rocky, earthy minerality, medium to full body, and a seamless texture all emerge from the glass.
...notes of strawberries, red cherries, rich spices, forest floor and subtle grilled meat. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, taut and youthfully firm, its bright core of concentrated fruit framed by chalky, fine-grained tannins...
...high-toned nose reflects notes of red raspberry, spice, floral and soft wisps of menthol...there is a beguilingly sleek and seductive texture to the delicious middle weight flavors that possess good mid-palate volume, all wrapped in a dusty, moderately firm and expansive finish that really fans out as it sits on the palate. This offers excellent depth.
Real verve on the nose, bright and intense red fruits with a hint of green tea. The palate is floral and lifted, with jasmine, red cherry and wild strawberries. Elegant yet intense, this ethereal wine is harmonious, approachable yet complex and very moreish.
