Medium yellow colour. There’s a faint savoury lift to the fresh nose, it’s more pleasantly mineral than fruity. I don’t think the 33°C weather is fooling me, it really does have decent concentration and a nice texture. Very good acidity offsets slightly mineral (again) flavours – I like this very much, and I’m sure I still would even if the weather were cooler!

Aromatically more interesting as the (still) ripe fruit has a fresher, more stony dimension. Sweet and just a little tighter in the middle. Interesting flavour and plenty of it. Also a good finish. I prefer this.

The nose is rather dumb – I can’t coax anything out. In the mouth this is actually rather good – super length and (I think) lots of potential.

A new name for me, but a nice wine. Quite a deep yellow. The nose is dense with gunflint against higher toned citrussy notes. Dense, perhaps need in a little more acidity, but long and tasty. Could be more refined I suppose, but made a good match with my dourade!
