After reading The Old Curiosity Shop, Oscar Wilde said that "one must have a heart of stone to read the death of Little Nell without dissolving into tears of laughter." Well, you really would have to have a heart of stone to taste this wine and not be utterly seduced by it. It's a pale red Burgundy, but it's bursting with 'wow factor' flavours of air-dried new oak, vanilla, rain-soaked hedgerow, kola and violets. There's a cool mineral core for the integrity spotters, who need to pin their flag on a map, but let's not worry too much about that, because this is all about Pinot Noir fruit expression. It's fairly light in body, but makes up for it in the beauty of its flavours and its discrete concentration. It will have you dissolving in tears of joy. 13% alc. Drink now-2019.
